CATTECis about catalyzing early stage investing in the Midwest. CATTEC is a means toward creating a Midwest network among those who create, fund, lead and otherwise support early stage high tech and research-based ventures in the Midwest.
Access to significant investment opportunities can yield attractive returns but to realize the potential, the ideas, the talent and the capital must come together. CATTEC V does just that. The universities of the Midwest include some of the nation’s leading institutions with a history of producing breakthrough technologies in information technology, life science, and energy technology. Complementing the technologies coming out of university labs, several new seed accelerators have sprung up to nurture and craft fundable deals based on innovative ideas and technologies. CATTEC V will showcase emerging technologies and startups from MRUN participating universities and from leading seed incubators' from around the Midwest.
