Our mission here at NEXT is simple: Empowering Startup Success.

As a result we are 100% focused on supporting startups throughout their life cycle from launch, to capital raising, to scale and growth. NEXT’s “client-centric” legal service delivery model and startup platform was designed by entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs.

With this mission and focus in mind, in 2023 we launched NEXT RAISE.

NEXT RAISE will allow us to ensure startups are “investor ready,” provide direct connections between Founders and Funders, and access to discounted partner pricing for Capital Raise (an investor referral platform). Working with startups to be “investor ready” has always been a core focus and now we want to formally introduce our investor network to selected seed stage startups from across the country that are indeed “investor ready. NEXT RAISE has had over 150 startups participate alongside 50+ investors to date.

NEXT RAISE will support entrepreneurs everywhere with a new, holistic approach to facilitating access to seed to Series A capital via a variety of events and tools, including:
