Cafe Innovation

Although equity financing is the main source of funding for early-stage technology companies, debt financing can play a vital role in growing your business. Join us for a conversation with a panel of lenders who will describe their respective firms, their product offerings, and discuss why debt financing is generally less dilutive than equity capital.


  • Coffee/tea and light breakfast will be provided.

  • Flexable Child Care is available. Reserve your spot via the registration link above.


    Panelists include:
    Tom Gordon, Silicon Valley Bank
    Matt Klinger, Bridge Bank
    Wendy Jarchow, River SaaS Capital
    Melissa Withers, RevUp Capital
    Chris Julich, Escalate Capital Partners

    Moderated by: Dave Lishego, Senior Investment Associate, Innovation Works
