“RAISE Forum” accepting applications for May 10 event

Emory University’s “RAISE Forum” is now accepting applications for its next event that will be held virtually on May 10, and applications close March 31.

RAISE is an acronym that is shorthand for “Retention and Advanced Investment for the Southeast at Emory Forum,” an opportunity for post-revenue start-ups that need $500,000 to $5 million in funding to execute their plan to grow.

As the RAISE group describes on its main webpage, “Our focus is on matching investors with entrepreneurs, all from the Southeast, with the goal being to fund more companies locally at higher levels. The RAISE Forum community has a healthcare bias, as well as seeking innovative technology.”
