Session Title: Fundraising Post Pivot

Able Cofounders Evan Baehr and Will Davis have raised more than $10M in three years for two different startups. Able’s NewCo session will cover the ups and downs of fundraising, storytelling of their most memorable moments, and useful learnings along the way including a big pivot. Will and Evan will also share the history of small business lending and interested small businesses can apply for an Able loan on-site during the session.

Able is located at 503 Colorado St on the 5th floor of the McGarrah Jesse Building at the corner of 6th and Colorado. If walking, you are looking for a glass door entrance at 503 Colorado Street, which you'll find through the car port. Take the elevator on your right up to the 5th floor. You'll find us by walking into the office door on the 5th floor. Paid parking is available along the street or in our garage.

  • Company Description Able is an Austin-based financial technology company that serves the Fortune 5 Million – the 5 million small businesses in the US that create two-thirds of all jobs, yet can’t access credit they need to grow their business. We solve this problem with a novel, collaborative loan structure. At Able we make 1, 2 or 3-year term loans up to $250,000 starting at a low interest rate of 8%--but with a twist. Borrowers raise the first 25% of the loan from friends and family, called Backers. Those Backers join Able, as being lenders in the loan to the small business and help the borrowers get the lowest interest rate.
