The Lighter Summit experience

David Gould, Principal at Solution One Partners

“I came away from the Lighter Summit energized and with a new perspective on how to move my business forward. Someone said that being an entrepreneur is lonely—how true! Spending a few days sharing experiences with other members of the 'Lonely-Hearts Club' was like stopping at an oasis in the middle of the desert. It will have an impact on me for a long time to come.”

Connect. Learn. Grow.

The Lighter Summit is open exclusively to Lighter Capital clients and alumni. 

Apply for up to $4M in non-dilutive growth capital to get started, or learn more about our founder-friendly startup funding solutions.
