You don't need to leave to build your company.  You can do it right here in the Heartland.  But finding capital can be a challenge. You would rather raise a small round. Quickly. Then, get back to showing everyone that you can execute. That is the reason we exist. Comeback Capital has assembled an all-star group of coastal and local LP's who share our passion and belief that great companies have been and will continue to be built in the Heartland. In addition to capital, Comeback Capital portfolio companies benefit from connections to advisors from more established startup markets.
