Venture fund draws crowd
The Pueblo Chieftain
(April 16, 2015)
Usually, it’s the business owner who makes the pitch to the investor. On Wednesday, the roles reversed.
The group behind the Colorado Impact Fund, including former Denver mayor Federico Pena, visited Pueblo to spread the word about the statewide fund that seeks to invest in companies that will better Colorado.
The fund, with $63 million in private money, seeks so-called “second-stage” businesses that generate between $500,000 to $3 million in annual revenue in sectors such as community health, natural resource conservation and education.
