Two Nevada startups will court potential investors at an inaugural event designed to help new tech firms raise seed money.
The event, Start-Up Vegas, was created and is sponsored by Coloma Ventures, a Las Vegas-based venture capital firm. The founder of each startup will have 30 minutes to explain its service or product to investors, according to a statement released by the firm. Investors will also have a chance to dialogue with the startup teams.
“There are a lot of investors out there who have made their money in traditional brick and mortar industries that would love the opportunity to invest in early-stage web ventures, such as Cameo or SnapChat, but the reality is they just don’t have the connections to the young entrepreneurs and programmers making them happen,” said Coloma Ventures Managing Partner Thomas Bell. “Start-Up Vegas was created to bridge that gap.”
The event will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Dec. 6 at Piero’s Restaurant, 355 Convention Center Dr., Las Vegas.
