Welcome to the Utah Valley Entrepreneurial Forum.
UVEF Presents: Utah Seed Funding Summit
This is our annual Funding Panel event with a new focus on seed funding and connecting entrepreneurs to local sources of startup funding. We are hosting a panel of early-stage seed funders who will help us better understand the requirements, and how best to apply for a round of seed funding.
The following funding organizations will present new information and take questions from the audience. Each of our panelists has a fund of less than $50 million, and a history of funding less than $2 million in any single company at one time, and are actively writing checks for $50k or more:
Jeff Burningham — Peak Capital Partners
Amy Rees Anderson — REES Capital
Clay Andrus — Plus550
Clarke Miyasaki — Kickstart Seed Fund
Steve Grizzell — InnoVentures Capital
Damon Kirchmeier — Auxano Funding and Inception Fund
The focus of our Utah Seed Fund Summit is to help entrepreneurs understand how to apply for funds with a seed capital firm, and what to expect before and after the checks have been written.
We hope you will join us for this rare opportunity to learn from the ones writing the checks before you give it a go.
