Erin Alexrod of LIFT Economy explains what she calls "a new win," companies willing “to radically decentralize the way they are getting capital."
Part 2: Making the deal happen
Alexrod discusses how to have humility about blind spots but also how to know blind spots about their own privileges as well.
Rudberg advises that entrepreneurs understand the venture fund they are going in to meet with and don’t be afraid to ask for help.
Consider alternative sources of capital such as philanthropic and community capital.
This Nutrition Capital Network (NCN) Funding Forum session—Patient Capital: Opportunities to Think Differently—was recorded at Natural Products Expo West 2019 and moderated by Douglas Raggio of Bias and Blind Spots.
