It really is.
We will hold our 22nd Deal Stream Summit on October 6, 2015, at the Anderson Abruzzo International Balloon Museum in Albuquerque.
From our press release:
Technology-based business opportunities that demonstrate outstanding potential for commercialization, innovation, and investment will be highlighted, presented in three separate flights over the afternoon.
“The Deal Stream Summit is New Mexico’s venue for showcasing exciting technology-based investment opportunities originating at the U.S. Department of Energy laboratories and other research institutes,” said John Freisinger, president and CEO of TVC. “It has served as a vehicle to facilitate private investment partnerships among emerging technologies within the lab, startups, and innovators.
“New Mexico has enjoyed unexpected growth in our entrepreneurial economy due to the intentional and coordinated growth in four factors: access to ideas, the availability of talent, intelligent capital, and the supportive community.”
In addition to an exciting agenda for investors, the Summit will kick off the Kauffman Foundation’s third annual Mayors Conference on Entrepreneurship, which brings mayors and entrepreneurship experts together to discuss ways to promote startup activity. Its theme, “Recipes for Growth,” will explore the role of local assets in supporting entrepreneurial activity.
Albuquerque is home to the world-renowned International Balloon Fiesta. Visitors from all over the world come to Albuquerque the first week in October to celebrate the beautiful wind-directed sport of ballooning. With hundreds of balloons taking flight, Deal Stream Summit attendees will be delighted with a panoramic view of Balloon Fiesta Park from the event site of the Balloon Fiesta Museum.
This annual Summit is focused on starting, building, and financing research-based technology, as well as startups and entrepreneurship from the labs. It has also allowed hundreds of companies to receive funding and fueled the commercialization of laboratory R&D and IP. To date, one-third of the presenting companies have received funding a noteworthy achievement and an unmatched success rate.
