Rotunda Fund

The Rotunda Fund invests in client companies of the Entrepreneurs’ Center that

  • Have a product or service that meets a proven market need as demonstrated through past sales; 
  • Have challenges accessing traditional capital;
  • Have $100K-$500K in repeatable annual revenue with profitable gross margins; and
  • Are on track to double annual revenue in a 2-4 year horizon.
The Rotunda Fund benefits entrepreneurs: 
  • A Rotunda Fund investment does not require entrepreneurs to give up equity;
  • The Fund is targeted for entrepreneurs who are not able to get a traditional bank loan;
  • Entrepreneurs will also benefit from the wrap-around services that the EC will provide to portfolio companies, including the strong focus on increasing revenue.
Companies receiving an investment from the Fund will make a monthly payment based on a negotiated percentage of company revenue (currently between 5 and 8 percent) over a period of 5 years or until 2x the investment has been paid.

Once you have completed your application, Kim Frazier from the Entrepreneurs' Center will schedule a screening call with you and inform you of next steps. 

If you have questions about the process, feel free to email Kim at kfrazier@ecinnovates.com.
