“Learning how investors think about and approach deals is an important perspective, especially for entrepreneurs who may be seeking angel or venture capital,” said Tom Still, president of the Wisconsin Technology Council, which is producing the Early Stage Symposium. “We’re thrilled that so many investors are willing to talk about their experiences and how that may help others.”
The annual conference, which has existed under different names for more than 20 years, will feature the fifth annual “Elevator Pitch Olympics” for companies in a seed financing stage and the third annual Wisconsin Angel Network Investors’ presentation track for companies seeking angel investments beginning in the $500,000 range.

The MHVF is an annual event led by the MidAmerica Health Investors Network, which includes 45 venture capital firms from 14 states as members. MHVF sought presenters in a 14-state region.
