Gardere is proud to sponsor and participate in the 2015 Texas Venture Growth Forum. In its first year, the conference will take place on Oct. 7-8 in Austin, Texas. As Texas continues to grow, its leading companies will need to raise more capital to continue their growth. This program seeks to educate the entrepreneur and facilitate introductions to prospective investors.
The two-day conference will highlight topics related to venture and private equity funding and will showcase leaders from Texas. Companies with greater than $5 million in revenue are invited to participate and will have the opportunity to present to venture capitalists, private equity firms and family offices from across the USA in a series of private presentations.
During the Wednesday afternoon session, Gardere Attorney Rick Jordan will participate on the “Venture Growth Roundtable.” This panel will share insights into challenges of unlocking hidden value in technology companies and provide an ideal framework for growth. On Thursday morning, Gardere Partner Jason Villalba will be featured as the kickoff keynote speaker, leading into panel discussions on managing growth technology companies, Series B and Beyond, and operational and infrastructure needs. Then that afternoon, Gardere Partner Adam Hull will present “Mind the Gap - Infrastructure and Operations,” which will discuss the demands growth companies place on local human resources, critical mass with partner companies and the government’s role supporting these organizations via incentives or other infrastructure needs.
