3) Provide personalized introductions to investors

4) Provide call center staffers for cold calls or warm calls.

5) Serve as an investment banker or placement agent through Great Point Capital.

6) Accelerate your funding, registration, and documentation processes so you can execute your business plan.

Over 22 years, our in-person and on-line conferences have attracted individual and private equity investors. For an extensive list, please see

In addition, you can find 20 pages of testimonials from prior presenters

This event distinguishes itself from many other on-line events in several key respects. Here are a few of them:

1) Nearly 100% of the guests (not connected with the presenting companies) are active investors.

2) Quality presenting companies

3) Only a few companies are featured on the program which provides for high visibility to investors.

4) There are no concurrent activities or competing presentations. All companies present to the entire audience.

5) Company presentations are immediately followed by a question/answer period.

6) These are "deal-oriented" events. There are no panels or speakers that keep the spotlight from the presenters.

7) The majority of the attendees are principals of the private equity or venture capital firms whom they represent.

8) Featured companies benefit from the strong brand equity that we have built with investors over nearly 20 years.

If you believe that your company's potential is truly compelling and that management's vision can be effectively communicated, this private event will provide you with a unique platform to get your message across in "One Place and in One Day" to active serious investors who want to see fundable deals. Follow up and sales are up to you.

In order to make the event as transparent as possible to potential Presenters, we provide confirmed guest information in advance when it is available. In evaluating the value of this event as platform to showcase a company, we encourage entrepreneurs to look at the websites of the prior investment organizations listed on the event site. It provides detailed information on their portfolio companies, industry preferences, funding capabilities and investment criteria.

Additionally, we build and incubate products from our ideation chamber, Startup Energy.

Additionally, the accelerator builds a community of mentors, investors, advisors, and like-minded founders to keep businesses on a steady growth trajectory to even greater ROI. Statistics and stories from the industry show that there is a pervasive support gap between the ROI – focused Venture Capitalists and the startups where they invest capital. Startups need a lot more support than just invested capital. We are not your typical entrepreneurs and investors. We only invest in companies we have closely worked with over time. Instead, we take senior operational or advisory roles, leveraging our revered reputation, experience, and network to drive, scale, and grow startups. Get Started. Go Up. Achieve ROI. Startup ROI.
