Austin, TX (PRWEB) September 16, 2011
The Texas Entrepreneur Networks (TXEN) today announced its Fall 2011 Funding Forums schedule with 10 opportunities in four regions around the state giving Texas entrepreneurs a greater opportunity to get their companies funded.
Each funding forum features 10 entrepreneur pitches in front of different investor panels assembled by TXEN in each location. Each entrepreneur has 10 minutes to deliver their pitch. Investors will be given a few minutes to ask questions and can follow up directly with the entrepreneur for subsequent meetings. Most funding forums are open to the public for viewing.
“The goal of our funding forums is to facilitate the pairing of high-growth startups with angel and venture capital investors more rapidly through pitch sessions,” said Hall T. Martin, director of the Texas Entrepreneur Networks. “Our range of funding forums around the state allows entrepreneurs to get faster exposure for their products and services in front of a variety of investor audiences resulting in a greater number of startups funded around the state.”
