Fundraising with Tim McLoughlin, Partner, Cofounders Capital

August 7, 2019  |  11:30 AM - 1:30 PM



In this session, NC IDEA will hold a “fireside chat” with Tim McLoughlin of Cofounders Capital to discuss what they look for in founding teams, get key insights from past experiences and hear other advice targeted to entrepreneurs looking to raise angel capital.

Cofounders Capital is a venture capital fund located in Cary, NC. Partners Tim McLoughlin and David Gardner recently closed on their second fund, a $31M fund focused on seed stage B2B software companies in North Carolina. Over the past 4 years, the team has invested over $10M in 22 companies. They are extremely involved with the companies early on, and truly consider themselves “cofounders”, except they buy their equity!

This event is part of the NC IDEA 2019 Summer Series. All of the sessions will take place in the NC IDEA LABS space on the American Tobacco Campus. Sessions will also be recorded and posted online afterwards for viewing and sharing. These sessions are for entrepreneurs only, no service providers please. Pizza will be served.

Registration is required. See the entire NC IDEA 2019 Summer Series schedule and register for other programs in the series here.
