The Chicago Investor Pitch Event was to highlight Family office, Venture Capital, and other accredited investor groups seeking to fund high quality growth startups. The program provided an Investor reverse pitch, startup pitches with an investor lead, and networking with other investors in the area.
Why it’s important to the investor community- Today there are many sources of venture funding and even more startups seeking funding. Funding is moving online but it’s important to stay connected to the community and share deal flow and best practices.
Special thanks to K&L Gates Seattle for hosting us.
