Our Story

With the ever-increasing number of builders and innovators out there creating the next wave of startups, they can’t all be based in just a few pockets and ecosystems known around the globe. At least that’s what our founders thought when they sat down in Wisconsin one afternoon to discuss ways to better connect early investors and venture capital to their local communities. Fast forward a few years and we see coastal investors more involved in smaller markets, growing interest in companies building upon innovative technologies not typically found in those once massive startup hubs. Access should be open for all investors, exposure should be given to all startups. We envisioned connections into new regions based on member-inputted data and member-controlled introductions.

Launched in 2018 to better connect ALL involved in the venture capital industry - no matter where you are, you deserve to be found!
