Our Mission here at NEXT is simple: Empowering Startup Success. As a result, we are 100% focused on supporting startups throughout their life cycle from launch, to capital raising, to scale and growth. NEXT’s “client-centric” legal service delivery model and startup platform was designed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. 

With this mission and focus in mind, we are excited to launch NEXT RAISE.

NEXT RAISE is the latest addition to the current NEXT array of tools that includes our Partner Network, Seed to Series A Roadmap, StartupU, PitchMasters and more.  NEXT RAISE will facilitate direct connections between Investor Ready Founders and investment seeking Funders, and provide access to discounted partner pricing on the Capital Raise investor referral platform.  Working with startups to be Investor Ready has always been a core focus and now we want to formally introduce our investor network to selected seed to Series A startups from across the country that are indeed Investor Ready. 

We are also thrilled to announce the NEXT RAISE Seed to Series A Investor Showcase on June 1, 2023. The Main Event will start at 4pm at Shulman Rogers’ offices and is limited to founders and funders. Attendees will enjoy 2 panel discussions comprised of leading regional and national VCs and Angel Groups; followed by a networking Happy Hour. Startups that are actively raising a round may apply to participate. NEXT RAISE Investors will select startups for 1:1 meetings prior to the Main Event from 1:30-3:30pm.  This is a great opportunity for innovative, exciting, investor ready startups and Seed to Series A Investors.

Thank you to our NEXT RAISE Sponsor Partners that are joining us to offer this exciting new platform.
