One of the industries the Midwest is extremely strong in is Healthcare. Some of the world’s top healthcare companies are here. In Chicago, Mayor Rahm Emanuel has made creation of a medical research, innovation and investing hub a priority. The universities that populate the Midwest are engaged in some of the most cutting edge research in healthcare. Our baby boomer population is aging, and are getting to the point where they will start consuming more healthcare.
All of those forces converge together to create magnificent opportunities for investing and building disruptive companies.
The MidAmerica Healthcare Venture Forum is designed to inform about recent developments and potential opportunities in the healthcare space. It brings together venture capitalists, angel investors, tech transfer offices, C level corporate executives, startups, and researchers to interact and help understand how they can create things together in the future.
