The law firm of Baker Donelson is accepting applications to the 2nd Annual Emerging Companies Capital Connections. The event focuses on bringing together successful entrepreneurs and capital investors. Last year, three of the seven companies that pitched at this event received $2.5 million in funding. From the emerging companies who apply, 15 will be selected by a committee, including several investors, to attend and participate.
WHO/WHAT: Companies interested must apply online at www.southeasternstartups.com by the deadline of April 22, 2014. Then, 15 companies will be selected by a panel that includes several investors. Each applicant selected will be able to pitch its company to attending investors during a morning session that also includes an education piece from the participating investors and Baker Donelson’s attorneys. After the pitch concludes, lunch will be provided, and then investors will select certain companies with whom they will meet during afternoon breakout sessions. Certain companies will also have the opportunity to win and receive free legal services from Baker Donelson.
