Congratulations to our client Elevate Capital, which manages one of the nation’s first venture capital funds to support inclusion and diversity, for their announcement today that it has secured a very strong return on the exit from its investment in locally-based RFPIO following a swift two-year investment period. RFPIO, the leading provider of cloud-based RFP (Request for Proposal) software, recently announced a $25 million series A investment.
We are also excited to be working with Elevate Capital to organize and launch its first annual Elevate Inclusion Summit on October,12 2018 in Portland. It will be a gathering of entrepreneurs including women, minority entrepreneurs from underserved communities, and veterans together with venture capitalists and investors. We’re planning a day of learning, sharing, inspiration, and new funding opportunities for entrepreneurs. This conference will be one of the first of its kind to be completely focused on the topic of inclusion. For more information, check out elevate.vc/events
