Texas Venture Growth Forum
The Texas Entrepreneur Networks and Hermes Investment Group is pleased to announce the launch of a new investment forum for Texas companies seeking later stage funding; Series B+ and Beyond. The Texas Venture Growth Forum will hold its first conference on October 7-8, 2015, to be held at the AT&T Conference Center in downtown Austin. As Texas continues to grow, its leading companies will need to raise more capital to continue their growth. This program seeks to educate the entrepreneur and facilitate introductions to prospective investors.
The two day conference will highlight topics related to venture and private equity funding and will showcase leaders from Texas. Companies with greater than $5M in revenue are invited to participate and will have the opportunity to present to venture capitalists, private equity firms, and family offices from across the USA in a series of private presentations.
Presenting companies will receive an introduction to later stage funding through a six week workshop series to be held August 18 – September 22, 2015. Companies already in discussions to participate include Jobs2Careers, Square Root, and more. Investors with initial interest to participate include Insight Venture Partners, Bessemer, Grayhawk, March Capital, Morgan Stanley, and Interwest Partners. We anticipate 20 companies will join to present along with 20-30 investors.
We welcome your referrals for those companies seeking funding and hope you can join us for this new event to help generate investment for Texas-based companies. Sponsorship opportunities are available on the Sponsorship page, along with the preliminary agenda for the conference and the workshop series.
