OU INC hosting talk on 'How to Find Capital in Michigan' March 21

Are you a technology business in need of funding, but do not know where to look?

Experienced capital strategist, Mike Brennan, of OU INC will be presenting, “How to Find Capital in Michigan for Early Stage Companies.” The event will take place on Tuesday, March 21 from 9:30-11:00 a.m. at OU INC, Shotwell Pavilion, 419 Golf View Lane, Rochester, MI 48309-4477.


With over 30 years of financial experience for both startup and growth stage companies, Brennan will discuss how to prepare for and target investment sources for your business, including grants, loans and angel investors.


“The Capital Raise and Preparation seminar provided by the Oakland University Incubator enables entrepreneurs and early stage companies to gain important insights into how to better prepare for, think about and secure capital from many different sources in the state of Michigan and beyond,” Brennan said.


Participants will have the opportunity to meet with Brennan for one hour after the event for a one-on-one discussion to evaluate their business’ financial needs. In addition, they will be given the opportunity to schedule consultations with him outside of the event.


This event will be held in OU INC’s Integrated Resource Center (IRC), a unique space which offers state-of-the-art technology accompanied by an electronic support system which enhances group work. The IRC enables teams to meet, plan and operate more efficiently and effectively through an approach that encourages discussion, idea exchange and allows real-time information gathering and feedback.


“Funding strategy is a key pillar to launching a business or commercializing a product,” said Amy Butler, Executive Director of OU INC. “Education and awareness of the process and resources available is a service offered through OU INC. We are excited to introduce new companies to these opportunities.


The event will conclude with a short financial strategy roadmap exercise to measure what the attendees learned.
