Posted: May 4, 2010 at 1:00 am, Last Updated: May 3, 2010 at 5:16 pm

Do you know a local company seeking $250,000 – $2 million in growth capital with a product or idea that is ready to market?

Thursday, May 6, is the application deadline for companies seeking to present their business investment opportunities at the June 10 Business Alliance Grubstake Breakfast.

At this breakfast, the referral sources for presenting companies will be listed with the company descriptions in the event program.

The Business Alliance Grubstake Breakfast series is the longest-running investor and networking forum of its kind in the metropolitan Washington, D.C., region.

The breakfast will take place from 7:30 to 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 10, at the Ritz Carlton in Tysons Corner, Va.

Though there are exceptions, the majority of companies selected to present their investment opportunities at these breakfasts typically are regionally based companies that

  • are seeking $250,000 to $2 million in focused growth capital;
  • have a product or service that taps an unmet market need;
  • have developed the product or service through beta or beyond — with at least initial indications of market interest;
  • are readily scalable with growth potential beyond a small market segment.

For more information regarding the program, past presenters or the application and selection process, see the Business Alliance web site.
