Building Investment Value
How great management teams build value, how entrepreneurs assemble great teams, and what investors look for in great manufacturing companies — and industry sectors.
Plus: Sector update: ‘Institutional’ dollars are flowing into Colorado with Boulder County at the center of a food financing revolution. What impact will food funds and other finance trends have on regional food entrepreneurs, brands and investors?
State of Lending and Finance
Banking relationships are the foundation of successful growth and finance strategies. What’s the banking view of regional manufacturing, what sectors are borrowing, and how do bank economists forecast the next 12-18 months?
Growth & Financing Strategies: Industry Voices
From early-stage financing to regional, national, and product-sector growth, successful manufacturers share growth and finance tactics.
CompanyWeek’s Reverse Fish-Tank:
Colorado manufacturers turn the tables on lenders and investors in a fun and lively back-and-forth about entrepreneurship, raising capital and growing a business.
