Blue 222 CEO Alan Grosheider to discuss nontraditional ways to raise startup capital Nov. 7


On Wednesday, Nov. 7, Venture Connectors will feature Alan Grosheider, CEO of Blue222 and director of Metro Startup Launcher, who will discuss nontraditional ways to raise capital for startups, including investment crowdfunding. He will explore crowdfunding regulations and the challenges startups may face when seeking alternative funding. He will also share ways the nonprofit Metro Startup Launcher can help local startups gain traction for their capital raise through its equity crowdfunding resources and access to equity funds.

Alan Grosheider

Grosheider has been a Louisville-area entrepreneur since starting his first business in 1993. He has built several companies from the ground up, raising capital in various ways, including loans, credit cards, friends and family, private placements, crowdfunding and venture capital. His largest venture to date, ESA1, raised significant VC funds, became a nationwide environmental inspection company with operations in all 50 states, and eventually sold to a larger firm. In addition to his role at Metro Startup Launcher, Grosheider is currently building Blue222, a real estate due diligence app that is “uberizing” the business of real estate inspections on a global scale.
