Unique matchmaking event aims to facilitate the financing process for nutrition, health, wellness, natural/organic and green product companies
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., August 28, 2007——The nutrition industry is distinguished by the creativity and passion of its entrepreneurs, but too few growing companies have access to professional capital and all the benefits that come with it. At its inaugural West Coast Investor Meeting in San Francisco on Wednesday, October 17, 2007, Nutrition Capital Network (San Diego, Calif.) will present professionally screened companies to motivated financial and strategic investors in the nutrition, health, wellness, natural & organic and green products arena.
Companies raising capital and interested in the opportunity to present their business plan to investors are invited to visit www.nutritioncapital.com to fill in a FREE application form. Only companies professionally screened and selected by Nutrition Capital Network will be eligible to present at the meeting.
Nutrition Capital’s meeting is primarily designed for companies at two stages*:
First Round: Typically companies beyond proof of concept with revenues less than $5 million and raising outside or professional capital for the first time.
Second Round or Later Stage: Typically companies that have already raised structured capital, with revenues of $5 million or higher and looking for growth capital.
Start-Up companies or those working on proof of concept may also submit a free application. NCN will judge Start-Up applications and introduce Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal winners at the October 17th meeting.
