The Texas Entrepreneur Networks (TXEN) today announced that it will be holding its first Funding Forum in the Houston area on February 22nd, from 1-4 pm. The location will be at the Katy ISD Education Support Complex, Conference Room 1200.
Texas Entrepreneur Networks produces funding forums in the major markets around Texas featuring up to 10 entrepreneur pitches in front of different investor panels assembled in each location. Each entrepreneur will have 10 minutes to deliver their pitch, and investors will be given a few minutes to ask questions and can follow up directly with the entrepreneur for subsequent meetings. This funding forum will be open to the public for viewing for $15, and observers can register at: http://feb22katyfundingforum.eventbrite.com/
“We’re excited to host our Funding Forum in Houston to give some exposure to startups and investors in that area,” said Hall T. Martin, director of the Texas Entrepreneur Networks. “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. 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.”
Entrepreneurs participating in the Texas Entrepreneur Networks Funding Forums were able to raise over $11 Million in 2011.
