Austin, TX (PRWEB) August 22, 2016
TEN Capital Group is pleased to announce Texas Venture Summit 2016 which will be held October 6, 2016 at Brazos Hall in Austin. Texas Venture Summit 2016 is an invitation only growth equity event hosting national and statewide investors matched to qualified Texas technology companies for one-on-one sessions.

Last year, the first Texas Venture Summit connected 27 companies with 42 investors, resulting in 125 one-on-one meetings. In the 12 months since, there have been seven funding events worth $84 Million that have resulted from Texas Venture Summit 2015. This year, the event will bring together over 40 expansion stage and over 60 growth stage technology companies with over 100 investors from across the US. This is an event that no Texas technology company in growth mode should miss. And for investors across the US interested in the best technology Texas has to offer, October 6 will bring them all together.
From the first Texas Venture Summit, in 2015, Delta-v Capital met Austin-based NSS Labs and invested $16 million in its Series B, along with initial investor Live Oak Venture Partners. Venu Shamapant, a general partner with LiveOak, said the conference and its emphasis on capital for Series B and growth will help the investment climate in Texas as a whole move beyond its recent emphasis on startups and early stage funding.
Dan Williams, vice president of Delta-v with offices in Dallas and Boulder, CO, said, “for a tech hub that’s as prominent as Austin, it’s great to have an event that brings the right people together. The leads are immediate and you can move forward whereas most other times deal flow comes from relationships and networks, a much longer process for everyone.”
Texas Ventures Summit is produced by TEN Capital Group, formerly known as Texas Growth Capital Forum, a financial services company that facilitates company and investor connections, shares data and analytics and puts on three growth equity conferences a year, one focused on healthcare, HealthCare Texas; one on consumer products; and this Texas statewide premier growth capital summit.
“Our mission is to measurably increase venture capital and investor presence throughout the state,” said Hall T. Martin, director, TEN Capital Group. “Startups founded in Texas need broader access to capital at every stage of growth to maximize their potential to achieve global scale. We are proud of what we accomplished last year with our second Texas Venture Summit. We expect more, and better, at Texas Venture Summit 2016. Do not miss it.”
This past May, the inaugural conference “HealthCare Texas” was produced by TEN Capital Group and presented by The University of Texas at Austin Dell Medical School. It featured over 20 speakers, over 30 investors, and over 40 company innovators in healthcare information technology, digital health, life science, and therapeutics.
TEN Capital Group is dedicated to igniting innovation and the long-term success of high growth Texas companies using the power of network and technology to optimize fundraising and investor relationships. By combining funding platforms, data analytics, and venture capital conferences, TEN Capital Group endeavors to build lasting relationships between entrepreneurs and investors worldwide.
