Obtaining Funding through Point Positive - the Process

Entrepreneurs interested in making a pitch to Point Positive should first contact Point Positive Coordinator, Melinda Little, via email or phone, to arrange a time to meet, preferably in person, to give Melinda an overview of your venture. If the opportunity seems promising, Melinda will work with you to help you move it forward, whether it's a fit for Point Positive investment or not.  If it potentially is a fit for Point Positive, she'll help you develop an "investment ready" pitch presentation. This will include having you participate in a practice pitch session with a sub-set of Point Positive members. The purpose of the practice session is to ensure that the pitch is as strong as it can possibly be.

Point Positive holds two pitch events each year, the first in late July or early August and the second in October. If you end up making a pitch and it's  well-received, Point Positive will subsequently conduct an in-depth due diligence review of your plan, youor projected use of funds, etc. If the outcome of that review is favorable, a deal will be structured and all of the Point Positive  members will, on an individual basis, have the chance to participate in the deal.
