Get Funded! Funding Feeding Frenzy – Angel Investor Preview

In just under a week and a half, VentureSHOT will be hosting the 15th Funding Feeding Frenzy. The FFF is like a local “Shark Tank meets The Apprentice” and has resulted in many different companies getting funded with millions of dollars total.  

Some of the top companies at previous Funding Feeding Frenzy events have received investments between $700,000 and $750,000 each.  Other companies have raised smaller amounts of funding.

Over the past six weeks, I took a leap into Chicago’s thriving entrepreneurship community.  By joining VentureSHOT in the role of Entrepreneur Collaboration Director, I’ve had a chance to get to know many entrepreneurs in the Chicago community.  I’ve witnessed firsthand the great work VentureSHOT is doing to help entrepreneurs grow revenue, scale their business, and get funded.
