Excerpt from Businesswire:
More than 4,500 early-stage U.S. companies spanning all 50 states participated in the Most Fundable Companies initiative, which is designed to bridge the gap between startups and the capital they need to succeed. The companies on the third annual list are located across the country and come from a variety of industries including biotechnology, renewable energy, aeronautics, and software technology.
"Investing in innovative companies can help our nation get back to work with good-paying jobs and bring the transformative change we all want," said Deryck J. van Rensburg, dean of Pepperdine Graziadio Business School. "The Most Fundable Companies initiative aims to educate founders on the investor diligence process and recognize exceptional entrepreneurs who are solving today's problems with inventive solutions and are also seeking investment capital to fuel their company's accelerated growth."
Amongst the Most Fundable Companies winners were three Pepperdine Graziadio and Pepperdine Caruso School of Law alumni: Wayne Rickard (MBA) with Terecircuits, Dan O'Day (JD/MBA) with ECFX, and Nelson Quintero (JD) with ECFX.
The Most Fundable Companies assessment evaluates several company variables including financial projections, market opportunity, intellectual property, competitive advantage in their market, and the strength of the management team expertise, all of which are used to produce a fundability score for every company that participates. Pepperdine Most Fundable Companies is powered by The Venture Alliance.
