COLORADO SPRINGS - The Colorado Springs Technology Incubator and Colorado College are teaming up to host a panel presentation on securing financing for startups on March 21.

The event, free and open to the public, aims to provide information to the entrepreneurial community seeking guidance and advice on how to fund and grow their companies, organizers said.

Two entrepreneurs will have the chance to pitch their companies and get candid feedback from panel members.

Panelists include: Chris Marks, partner at Boulder's Tango/High Country Venture; Bill Miller, managing partner of PV Strategies LLC and PV Ventures LLC; Peter Adams, executive director of Rockies Venture Club; Chris Blees, CEO of BiggsKofford; Ric Denton, CEO of Colorado Springs Technology Incubator; and Stephen Kaczmarek, coordinator of innovation and incubation at Colorado College and owner of Fatbike.

"Few agents are as critical to an economy's success as entrepreneurs," said Denton. "More than ever, our community must become a collective change agent that fosters and supports our entrepreneurs and their innovations.

"That's where mentorship, provided by experts with been-here, done-that experience, comes in."

"I've experienced first-hand the challenges of funding my startup and the value that the right set of investors and advisors can provide," said Kaczmarek. "This is a fantastic opportunity to meet startup pros and gain actionable insights."

The event runs from 5:30-8 p.m. at Colorado College's Jerome P. McHugh Student Commons, 1090 N. Cascade Ave. Space is limited and RSVPs are required.
