It's a well-known problem in the startup world: there are always too many ideas and not enough investors. How can entrepreneurs improve their chances of getting funded in the year 2013? What will it take? Blood, sweat and tears? A miracle?
Perhaps not. Because this year, the 2013 InvestMidwest Venture Capital Forum aims to provide access to capital for emerging, privately held companies and to promote greater entrepreneurship, business growth and expansion in the Midwest region.
InvestMidwest will take place on April 3-4 at Westin Kansas City (Crown Center). The event will include 3 industry tracks including life sciences, IT/general business and food/ag/bioenergy. There will be 10-minute presentations from 40-45 emerging business as well as an opportunity for individual meetings.
InvestMidwest recently extended its application deadline to January 18, 2013 so startups have over a week to submit their businesses.
