Green Grab: 9 July 2014

On Friday, July 25th, these three companies will present at our 2014 Green Grab:
Kuli Kuli
Wash Cycle Laundry
Come to the Annual Gathering and watch them pitch! 

What is a Green Grab? 
Green Grab connects high-growth sustainable companies who are seeking seed-stage investments with professional accredited investors. Described as “Shark Tank as if created by public television and not on TV, ” investors come to the table prepared to make real investments. 

One of last year’s companies received a $30,000 investment!
Please join us as we come together to celebrate these world-changing entrepreneurs as well as the rest of our Mentor Capital Network.
