Are you Raising a Seed or Series A Round?

We are thrilled to announce our second NEXT RAISE Seed to Series A Investor Event will be in collaboration with DC Startup Week 2023! Startups that are “investor ready” and raising a current round of Seed to Series A funding are able to apply to be selected for 1:1 speed dating investor meetings (in person only) from 1 to 4pm, followed by a Happy Hour from 4-5pm, on Wednesday October 18th at Expansive, 1201 Connecticut Avenue, NW. Are you a Seed to Series A startup currently raising capital? NEXT RAISE is industry agnostic but we do require revenue and traction to participate. If you are “investor ready,” apply by October 6th, 2023. Startups will be notified by October 13th if they have been selected to participate in the 1:1 speed dating investor meetings.

You do not need to be a NEXT client to participate.
