I attended the high energy RainSource Conference in Bloomington last week and was really impressed with the organization and connectivity at the conference. It was alive with smart people and great ideas. The speakers were great (I was really wowed by the X Prize speaker) and it was stunning to see so much entrepreneurial talent & achievement in one place.
Rain Source Capital is creating 121 Angel Funds around the country to provide money for early stage companies. The conference brought together investors and early stage companies with the intention of educating and making connections (it worked).
Cudos to the RainSource team for a powerful conference and for working so hard to help business growth, the economy, and jobs.
