The top investment forum in the Midwest is hoping to garner more applications from fast-growing firms in the Kansas City area.
Now in its 18th year, the InvestMidwest Venture Capital Forum hosts investors from around the world that hope to hear from the region’s most-promising firms that need a boost of capital. Companies that presented at InvestMidwest’s previous events have collectively raised more than $1 billion in equity investment.
The forum will be held March 28 and 29 in Kansas City, however, the deadline for businesses to apply is Jan. 13.
“We are seeking applications from companies in search of substantial investment to power their growth to a dynamic, new level,” InvestMidwest executive director Christine Walsh said in a release. “The entrepreneurs and innovators leading those businesses aren’t planning on organic, gradual growth.”
The 2017 forum includes three separate industry tracks that will be presenting simultaneously: a life sciences track, an information technology track and an agriculture/bioenergy track. More than 40 businesses will each deliver investors presentations of up to eight minutes in length.
The organization said that about 300 people attend the event, including venture capital firms, corporate and angel investors as well as business, finance and legal professionals.
