We believe that entrepreneurs and startups succeed when they have access to the resources they need — whether that’s business support, social capital, or private capital. Prairie Capital Summit was created as a way to bring together entrepreneurs, investors, and community builders to spark discussions around private capital in the midwest. Take a look at photos from our most recent Prairie Capital Summit!

What can I expect at Prairie Capital Summit?
This half-day gathering includes inspiring and educational speakers, panel discussions on topics relevant to founders and investors, and educational tracks for those managing funds and those wanting to learn more about raising capital. 

Who is this event for?
This event was created for entrepreneurs who are interested or considering equity finances as a pathway to grow their startup, investors who are actively investing in early stage startups, community organizations who are focused on benefiting entrepreneurs by sharing state or public resources, and students who are interested in pursuing a career in venture capital or entrepreneurship.

This event is not designed for people who represent another brand, such as a bank broker or insurance representative, as well as MLMs, franchise owners, and salespeople. This event is also not designed for business owners not interested in raising capital, non-profits, or charities. (We have an event specifically designed for those doing social-impact work in our region. Check out the Possibility Summit.)
