Building a new venture in the investment field is no small feat. Neither is building an investment ecosystem. So I now have some help!
Dawn Bowles, herself an experienced entrepreneur, has joined Pique Ventures as a Commercialization & Investment Readiness Advisor. Dawn has been “in the trenches”, having started, built, and raised investment capital for DreamBank. We have been meeting with entrepreneurs together and I can see the trust between Dawn and the entrepreneurs established quickly because Dawn has been in their shoes. Have a look at the People section on our website to read more about her or you can meet Dawn in person. She and I are hosting Office Hours on Tuesday, February 19th:
25-minute Advisory Session with Bonnie or Dawn from Pique Ventures
When: Tuesday February 19th, 2-3:30pm
Where: HiVE Vancouver #210-128 West Hastings Street or via Skype
If you’ve been wondering what your next steps are to get funding or other resources to start or grow your business, book a session with us during Office Hours. Come prepared to share relevant information so we can make the most of the session: i.e. your ventures’ stage, (seed stage, prototype, revenue producing), funding received to date, anticipated funding needed, next 3 milestones and top challenge or need at the moment.
Pique Ventures @ Ubizo
Dawn is also participating in Ubizo as a mentor (hosted by good friend and coach, Lisa Princic, Ubizo is a one-day event, where entrepreneurs can work through their most challenging business problems and learn new strategies from high-level mentors and peers). We love what Lisa and Ubizo are doing to support entrepreneurial people and their businesses – it’ll be another opportunity for you to access the resources they need to progress their business and a chance to find out how we might be able to work together.
