The forum will emphasize strengths of the Midwest innovation ecosystem that include thriving sectors in food and agriculture, healthcare and life sciences, and financial services among others. Technology-based, fast-growth companies that currently operate in the Midwest or those that seek to improve the overall well-being of communities in the “fly over” region are encouraged to apply.
Applications are now closed. The deadline to apply was January 30. Following a company’s submission, our selection committee will review each application to select the presenting companies for InvestMidwest.
There is no fee to apply. If you're selected, the fee
to participate in the program is $455 for the first attendee and $390 for the second registration to the event. Companies that are selected will have the opportunity to pitch before an audience of prominent venture, corporate, and angel investors.
