“Go Fund Yourself”? Happy to!

Shawn Nelson, founder and CEO of LoveSac, moderated an ELab panel about how startups go about getting investment from their personal experiences.  The ELab was so proud to host them on Thursday the 25th of February at our partner space LMHQ. The panel included Nate Checketts, founder and CEO of Rhone, Josh Francia, founder and CEO of CrowdWyse, Shaun Gordon, chairman of Pristine Environments & former hedge fund manager, and Barbara Raho, co-founder of Urban Outfitters and current angel investor and member of Golden Seeds. The panel spoke about the different ways in which startups can get investments whether they are technology-based, service-based, or project-based businesses. It was an intimate evening where they answered thoughtful questions, shared personal experiences, gave invaluable advice, insightful tidbits. A memorable moment for Elab!
