manufacturing serendipity

One-on-one meetings for ALL Midwest-based or Midwest-linked startup founders, VCs and angel investors focused on Pre-Seed, Seed and Series A stages, hosted by Sandalphon Capital

Returning Q1 2021

midwest.tech/connect overview

COVID-19 has created more need than ever for early stage funding in the Midwest. Fundraising and due diligence are taking longer than usual, and founders are trying to fundraise a few warm introductions at a time. It's also more difficult for investors to source deals due to reduced travel, fewer events, and less networking.

So, we thought we'd do something about it.

What

  • A regional virtual summit focused on 1-on-1 meetings between startups and investors, each 25 minutes plus a 5-minute break.
  • At our first summit, MTC2020 in September 2020, we facilitated over 3,300 connections between approximately 280 investors and 850 startups, and raised $1,500 for Feeding America.

Who

  • Founders (Pre-Seed to Series A stage) based in the Midwest or with ties to the region
  • Funders (angel investors and VCs) active in the Midwest

Where

  • Virtual summit hosted by Sandalphon Capital

When

  • Returning Q1 2021 - sign up for our email updates to hear about it
