The Midcontinent Venture Capital Summit, hosted by Oklahoma-based venture capital firm Cortado Ventures, highlights all facets of the burgeoning startup technology industry outside of coastal bubbles.

In a world where talent is spread fairly evenly and venture funds congregate in coastal markets, there is a gold rush of opportunity for limited partners, venture capital firms, and entrepreneurs to pioneer technology innovations of legacy industries that dominate central US regions.

This gathering will celebrate the achievements, challenges, and opportunities from each stakeholder perspective of our domestic emerging market for technology innovation.

  • 9:00 Welcome

  • 9:15 Founder Panel

  • 1:00 Institutional Investor Panel

  • 2:00 Family Office Panel

  • 3:00 Keynote Fireside Chat

  • 4:30 Networking Reception

A book signing with David Epstein and Founder Pitches will also be hosted throughout the day.
