Getting the capital you need to start or grow your business is a top challenge most business owners face.

There are plenty of misconceptions about finding money for your business. In this meetup, we’ll break down the basics of funding and provide you insights on how to take your next steps.

Our panel we’ll touch on topics like:

  • What types of funding are available
  • What you need to focus on to get funding
  • Why are people not successful in getting the money they need

There will be plenty of Q&A time to get your specific questions answered. Submit your questions before the meetup by tweeting @makerhoods, DM’ing us on IG, or come prepared to ask the panelists your questions on funding.

“The mind which is created quick to love, is responsive to everything that is pleasing, soon as by pleasure it is awakened into activity” — Dante Alighieri, The Divine Comedy

There’s a little vibration, something nagging at your feet, like a little devil with the head of a bird and the body of a baby poking your bum compelling you to move- to DANCE! It’s that time…. to pull out your fig leaves, your hot pokers, and your flower petal capes and join us for BOSCH BASH! PES’ second annual dance party- an evening of drinks, contests, and dancing inspired by Hieronymus Bosch’s notoriously strange painting The Garden of Earthly Delights (1490s)

Last year we pulled out the pajammys and cat walked. This year we ask that you get a little bit weird (aka creative) with your costumes and strike a pose with something from the gorgeous garden, the strange space of purgatory, or the stranger still depths of hilarious demons in Hieronymus Bosch’s hell (please do not harm any live animals, such as birds or unicorns, for the sake of your costume!) our illustrious judges will pick someone from each category for a special prize…

Proceeds from this loopy night do have a purpose- they go to support the Project for Empty Space annual Artist in Residency program, which supports several artists each year in their time exploring the meeting point of socially impactful discourse and art.
