Rockridge Venture Law® is honored to partner with Impact Hub New York Metropolitan Area to support their Blueprint 2021: Impact Fellowship program. On Tuesday, April 6th, Rockridge® team members Kevin Christopher and Bruce Allen presented alongside Candid and Critical Ventures about different types of funding available for early stage startups. Citing grants, patient capital sources, and venture capital, the presenters helped Impact Hub fellows identify various investment opportunities available to help them build and scale their social enterprises.
Consistent with Rockridge®’s goal of helping founders and early stage companies unlock their potential, the Impact Hub presentation is an important touch point to anchor the firm’s national presence. Rockridge® founder Kevin Christopher says, “We were thrilled to speak with Impact Hub New York’s cohort of innovators to help them identify new funding opportunities, refine their pitches, and scale their ventures. The Impact Hub Network does an amazing job supporting entrepreneurs and driving social impact.”
