Active Investors

Meet Growing Companies

The RAISE Forum is creating local funding for in-revenue companies that need an investment round between $500K and $5MM. Working with Emory University's Goizueta Business School, we're seeking a broad portfolio of applicants from software to manufacturing to match our expertise in healthcare, fintech, and growth.


Building A Community
In the Southeast
For the Southeast

RAISE features only Southeastern investors, focusing on group syndication, VCs,

large angel groups and family offices. Many of our best prospects come from those sources, as well. We help keep early-stage companies in the Southeast by funding them locally.

A Unique Funding Format
Hosted by Emory's Prestigious
Goizueta Business School

The RAISE Forum introduces companies ready to scale and grow to active investors in a concise and efficient morning of formal presentations and conversations. Candidates also receive mentoring from University representatives and local start-up experts.
