Back again after its kickoff in 2017, VC’s Unplugged is designed for entrepreneurs, service providers, angel investors and VC investors to have an opportunity to meet out-of-state venture capitalists and engage in informal conversations about funding opportunities within our region. The event, featuring nearly 100 guests, will include a panel of seasoned venture capitalists, great networking, and a catered luncheon.
