Seems like it is not just the presidential candidates that need to be hitting the road. If you are an entrepreneur on the campaign trail to funding there are a series of events coming up that you should consider.
The folks over at Startup Lounge are having their next Capitial Connections event on February 6. Mike and Scott continue to make this event better every time out. They have added the Angel Lounge to the event and are getting more investors then ever to come. Registering is relatively easy. If you want to set up a demo you can. They are going to select some entrepreneurs to do a 2 minute pitch at a microphone. Or you can just mingle if want. Sign up soon. They are going to close registration this week.
Southeast Venture Conference
This takes place up in Tyson’s Corner at the end of February. ATDC will be well represented with NeuroStar, Suniva, and VT Silicon presenting. CapVenture company SoloHealth will also be featured. Applications are closed to this event hosted by ATDC partner TechJournal South, but you can still register to attend. And a big BTW, I have a VIP code offering $300 off the price. ATDC300M.
CED Venture Conference
Finally there is the CED Venture Conference which will occur on April 16-18 in Durham. This event attracts 800+ attendees, many of which are investors seeking both bioscience and advanced technology companies. This year, CED is targeting to fill 40% of its “participation slots” with companies outside of North Carolina so that makes ripe pickings for Georgia entrepreneurs. CED is currently seeking presenters for companies from startups to growth stage. It will cost $50 to apply for the conference and depending upon what “bucket” you are placed in, you will be asked to remit additional $200-600 to present.
