Believe it or not, a lot of stuff happens outside of the Silicon Valley/NYC/Boston tech hubs.
Forty-four startups focused on life sciences, technology, and clean energy/sustainability will pitch venture capitalists, corporate and private investors, and investment bankers during the 13th Annual InvestMidwest Venture Capital Forum in St. Louis April 4-5. Their goal is to provide access to equity capital for emerging, privately held companies seeking venture funds from $1 million to $20 million.
The companies are from all over the place: Colorado, Kansas, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Utah and Wisconsin. They were selected based on their value proposition, products/services, financial summaries, management teams and marketing strategies and opportunities.
If you’ve never heard about InvestMidwest before, their history is pretty impressive. They have helped generate over $850 million in investments and acquisitions for innovative growth companies. If you’re an investor, the registration deadline is coming up on March 16. You can learn more here.
Good luck to all the participating startups!
