midwest.tech/connect will bring together Midwest startups and investors

Taking place March 23-25, 2021, midwest.tech/connect will match Midwest startup founders with a pool of VCs and angel investors interested in investing in the Midwest.

The three-day virtual summit, hosted by Sandalphon Capital, will facilitate one-on-one meetings between founders, VCs and angel investors based on mutual opt-in.

Beginning on February 23, attendees will be able to set up private meetings directly on the events platform. The summit’s new platform features a discovery algorithm that helps attendees find the best matches for your meetings, real-time meeting requests, the ability for attendees to self-manage their profile and availability, private integrated meeting rooms, and more.

Following feedback from the pilot event in September 2020, the 2021 summit will include more angel investors, pre-seed investors, advisors and mentors for startups in the earliest stage.

Last year’s summit facilitated over 3,300 connections between approximately 280 investors and 850 startups and raised $1,500 for Feeding America. For this event, at least 10% of revenue will be donated to Girls Who Code, an international non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in technology.

This year’s summit will also feature a series of webinars covering topics from a cross section of startups and investors including pitching, product management, remote teams, exits and more.

Founders and investors can register here. The registration deadline is February 22.
