Warren Averett Sponsors the Raise Forum

Written on March 28, 2019

Warren Averett, LLC is pleased to be the Accounting sponsor of the 2019 RAISE Forum at Emory University’s Goizueta Business School beginning May 3, 2019.

“This will be a great partnership,” said Barry Etra, founder of RAISE. “Warren Averett works hard for emerging firms.”

The RAISE Forum introduces vetted, prepped companies to interested and active investors in a day of formal presentations and informal consultations. Throughout the process, candidates of the forum also receive mentoring from professors and local business professionals. By having a regional focus, the goal of the event is also to keep businesses and talent in the Southeast.

“The RAISE Forum is a great partner for Warren Averett,” said John Shurley, Managing Member of Warren Averett’s Atlanta office. “I believe our involvement in the Forum paired with our expertise in serving clients across all facets of a business will help the candidate companies prepare for future growth and investment.”

The RAISE Forum creates a pure funding environment, where both the investors and applicants benefit. Investors get to hear from vetted, in-revenue companies and candidate companies receive guidance, training and potential funding. In preparation of the event, invited candidate companies are given advice and guidance by sponsors like Warren Averett, to make a seven-minute presentation followed by a seven-minute Q&A to active, regional investors. On May 3, investors then will only hear from the best finalist candidate companies who have developed from the process.
