Social enterprises that are currently raising capital are encouraged to apply to these events.

Coming September 13th, Investors’ Circle will host its next event, Beyond the Pitch: San Francisco. Applications are due no later then July 7th.

“Beyond the Pitch was an extremely well-run event. From the screening and planning, through the preparation, the pitch day, and the follow-up communications, the Investors’ Circle team were absolute pros. Even better, the event was filled with potential investors who cared about our mission.”

- Patti Smith, Co-Founder of Querium, an IC-Funded company
