As an investor, I left Connect Money Impact event so encouraged by the entrepreneurs (in attendance) and the diversity of their businesses. I’ve already connected with a few and have plans to meet with them to provide more financial help, if I can. -Matt Putra, VP of Finance, Chief Financial Officer of New Market Funds
