Fireside Chat: The Funding Puzzle: Piecing Together a Growth Plan

July 11 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Session information and panelist headshots

From business loans to lines of credit, investors to grants, there are many different ways to piece together your funding puzzle to make your capital work for you.

On July 11 we’re hosting a fireside chat with four women founders who will share their experiences accessing various sources of capital to drive the growth of their business.

Whether it’s moving their business out of their garage and into a dedicated space, or raising over half a million dollars from investors to fuel an ambitious expansion strategy into the US, capital has played a big role in each of these women’s growth journeys:

  • Alice Couderc is the co-founder of Atome Bakery, an innovative online bakery delivering ready-to-bake artisanal sourdough bread and pastries directly to customers’ doors across BC, Alberta and Washington.
  • Samantha Matsuda is the dedicated owner of Evolution Equestrian Co, nestled in Courtenay, BC. She has a passion for all things equine and specializes in providing top-notch new and used tack for riders and their beloved horses.
  • Aki Kaltenbach is the Founder and CEO of Save Da Sea Foods, a plant-based fresh seafood company that creates products that have the same nutrients and flavour as seafood without the toxins and harm to the planet.
  • Erin Alexander is an Entrepreneur-in-Residence and Certified Investor Q&A™ facilitator. She helps women raise more in investment by mastering Q&A conversations with investors.

Join us to hear how these women are completing their funding puzzles by accessing other people’s money, and taking risks to secure the funds they need to execute their growth strategy.

Thursday, July 11 | 10am to 11am PT | Free Virtual Fireside Chat
