Creating a regional investment fund ... from scratch

by Patrick Donohue, Kevin Spreng, and Jeffry Brown | at MinneBar 11 | 2:45 – 3:35 in Gandhi | View Schedule

Founding shareholders of Hill Capital Corporation will share the vision of creating a regional investment fund to invest in growing small businesses.

Hill Capital Corporation was founded in honor of one of our most successful local entrepreneurs - James J. Hill. Not only did Mr. Hill create a significant business (Great Northern Railway), he was a tremendous community builder.

Learn about the inspiration that motivated entrepreneurs to come together in an effort to organize a fund that will invest in growing small businesses and support entrepreneurship throughout the Empire Builder Corridor. We will host a discussion about the funding gaps that exist in business finance and how we can come together as a community to provide a solution.
