Sixth edition of the “Denver Capital Matrix” details funding sources for Denver entrepreneurs and small businesses
In celebration of Denver Startup Week and the city’s vibrant entrepreneurial climate, the Denver Office of Economic Development today released the sixth edition of its Denver Capital Matrix, a resource directory of funding sources for Denver small businesses and entrepreneurs.
“Fostering the emergence of startups and the expansion of our small businesses remains a critical component of the city’s economic development strategy,” said Eric Hiraga, executive director of the Denver Office of Economic Development. “When it comes to access to capital, there are a myriad of funding options available for Denver’s entrepreneurs. We’re proud to help connect local firms to these sources, so that they can scale up and thrive.”
The matrix identifies more than 400 funding sources, including traditional bank lending, venture capital firms, private equity firms, angel investors, mezzanine sources, investment banking institutions and others that have funded Colorado businesses. The matrix provides contact information and categorizes the investment focus of each listed organization.
Data sources for the Denver Capital Matrix include the National Venture Capital Association, S&P Capital IQ and the Colorado Bankers Association.
