The 38th annual Midwest Growth Capital Symposium will showcase companies in the Midwest that are seeking seed, Series A, and Series B funding May 14-15 at the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest in Ypsilanti Township.
The conference attracts top-tier investors from across the U.S. and hosts more than 500 attendees comprised of early-stage companies that span the life sciences and technology sectors, angel investors, venture capitals, and technology transfer professionals from Midwest universities.
“MGCS has always attracted an audience that extends across the Midwest,” says David Brophy, the founder of the Midwest Growth Capital Symposium and director of the Center for Venture Capital and Private Equity Finance at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business. “This year, we’re expanding the concentration of out-of-state attendees to broaden the pool of capital and resources available to established startups seeking follow on rounds of funding.”
Keynote speakers will include Dixon Doll, co-founder and partner emeritus of DCM Ventures; Scott Kupor, managing partner of Andreessen Horowitz; and Jan Garfinkle, founder and managing partner of Arboretum Ventures in Ann Arbor.
The symposium will also include presentations on the tech, medical, and life sciences industries; specialized tech transfer pitch track; and panel sessions and live pitch tracks.
A lunch reception and networking cocktail reception will be hosted May 14, and a networking breakfast reception and a networking lunch will take place May 15.
