2016 TiECon Midwest to Offer $1B in Investments to Startups
TiECon Midwest, a two-day entrepreneurial conference to be held Oct. 27-28 in Dearborn, will offer a platform of investment opportunities up to $1 billion for startups with ideas that can revolutionize health care mobility.
Along with funding, the investment opportunity will offer incubation space and senior mentorship for startups that are selected.
“We are in search of new developments in science and technology that will improve health on a global scale,” says Tel Ganesan, president of TiE Detroit. “We believe total investment of this magnitude for all startups, and the providing of physical incubation space in Michigan, can assist innovators with solutions that will benefit humanity worldwide.”
During TiECon Midwest, an anonymous investor and innovation team will meet with vetted startups seeking funding. The team will also offer product expertise and mentorship.
All ideas must be preregistered on the conference’s website, and applicants must attend the event.
