September 17, 2016 – While momentum is riding high as Denver Startup Week reaches its peak, the Denver Office of Economic Development released the fifth edition of its Denver Capital Matrix, a resource directory of funding sources for Denver small businesses and entrepreneurs.
“Access to capital is a critical thread through every startup venture, and there are far more options for financing than many entrepreneurs realize,” said OED Executive Director Paul Washington. “Denver enjoys a very healthy mix of investment and financing resources that are supporting our entrepreneurs.”
The matrix identifies more than 400 funding sources, including traditional bank lending, venture capital firms, private equity firms, angel investors, mezzanine sources, investment banking institutions and others that have funded Colorado businesses. The matrix provides contact information and categorizes the investment focus of each listed organization.
Data sources for the Denver Capital Matrix include the National Venture Capital Association, S&P Capital IQ and the Colorado Bankers Association.
