Life in the fast lane for a start-up company like EcoPesticides takes us to some exciting places. Africa. Texas. Montana. India. And soon, we’ll be off to Kansas City, Missouri.
We just got news this week that EcoPesticides has been selected to present at the 2015 Invest Midwest Venture Capital Forum, one of the region’s top technology showcases. More than 150 companies applied for the honor of presenting in one of three industry tracks: life sciences, technology and food/agriculture/bioenergy. EcoPesticides was one of the 40 selected.
The Invest Midwest Venture Capital Forum is a great venue for us. Invest Midwest has helped generate more than $1 billion in investment over the past 15 years. Event planners anticipate 300+ attendees from top venture capital firms. Finally, our technologies, insect-specific biologic pesticides and performance boosting encapsulation that prolongs effectiveness, should connect with this largely agricultural region. With interest in “green” alternatives to chemical pesticides growing, the EcoPesticides message of insect-specific crop protection that does no harm to the environment should create interest.
The 16th annual InvestMidwest Forum is April 1-2 at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center. Our CEO, Les Stewart, will be there. Tell him hey, will you?
