Disrupting the Venture Capital Landscape

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The current venture capital funding landscape is severely limited in geographical scope. Startups in the top three states – California, Massachusetts, and New York – receive 70 percent of venture capital funding. This session will examine how non-traditional venture funds can play a role in expanding access to capital for entrepreneurs under-served by current VC models. Hear from fund managers in the states of Wisconsin, Ohio, and Texas on their models for investing in high-growth businesses within their respective geographies, and how their investments encourage follow-on investment from more traditional venture capital funds.
