IVCA Makes Announcement on Midwest Venture Summit

January 27, 2009

CHICAGO - “ The IVCA has taken primary responsibility for presenting and underwriting the Midwest Venture Summit for the past four years.

This event has provided the opportunity for early stage companies and angel/venture investors to - œfind-  each other and develop relationships. It has also provided an important opportunity for business school students to present their winning business plans to the community.

Given the current market conditions and demands on our resources, the IVCA has decided that it can no longer take the lead and underwrite this event.

We are happy to work with any and all entrepreneurial groups that would like to pick up the event and can commit the venture community's support. We truly hope that the entrepreneurial community can keep this event going and will assist with any effort that emerges.
