Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 16, 2013
Armed with strategic partners such as the Small Business Advocacy Council and MeetAdvisors, Venture Connects is proud to announce its first Chicagoland "Venture Pitch" session.
Utilizing its national platform, Venture Connects has secured incredible businesses for "Venture Pitch Sessions" including BizHive, ShredSpot, Trumarx and ToothPain Rx for Seed and Series A pitch sessions. Elliot Richardson, SBAC President, explains, "A primary challenge facing small business owners and entrepreneurs is obtaining access to capital. We look forward to introducing the presenters to individuals that are not only able to provide them with financing, but also with the connections, and wisdom, to help them succeed.” Accredited investors will be in attendance to watch the pitch sessions and have the opportunity to invest in some of these Chicago budding companies.
While this occasion has been limited to 400 attendees, a select number of tickets have also been made available to the general public. Treasurer of Chicago Stephanie D. Neely will kick off the event, followed by a keynote speech from 500 Startups Rishi Shah of Context Media. Budding entrepreneurs and seasoned business owners interested in starting, growing, or advancing their business will have the opportunity to take part in the live "Venture Pitch Session" which involves Venture Capital and Angel Investors, looking for some of the most innovative companies.
We all know "The ABC show Shark Tank is cool to watch," shared Adam Fridman, Founder of MeetAdvisors. "The difference is, this Venture Pitch session creates the right foundation to foster long-term relationships." RJ Pahura, CEO of Venture Connects, also offered, "This type of pitch session could not have been made possible without amazing and collaborative partners such as the SBAC and Meet Advisors. All companies have worked in tandem with the Venture Connects platform to ensure quality deal flow for investors and entrepreneurs to be ready for presentation at this event."
The event will be kicked off promptly on Wednesday, September 18th, 2013, at 5:00 p.m. at the beautiful Mid-America Club on the 80th floor of the Aon Center. This event space was specifically chosen for this incredible event to entice all attendees with the beautiful ambience and entrepreneurial spirit it entices.
