Last year, led by Jason Epstein of the Nashville office of Nelson Mullins and Michael Burcham, Founder of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center, Nelson Mullins and the Nashville Entrepreneur Center rolled out the model of the “Capital UnConference Investor Day” through two successful events in Nashville, Tenn., that resulted in more than 15 term sheets and more than $25 million in financing for companies.

“The tag line for Investor Day is ‘no panels, no roundtables, no conference: all business’,” said Mr. Epstein. “Nowhere else do investors and pre-screened, investable early and growth stage technology companies have an opportunity to engage in substantive discussions through a series of 30-minute meetings all taking place in one venue in one day.”

Helen Quick, a partner in the D.C. office of Nelson Mullins and a leader in the Nelson Mullins Healthcare and Private Equity/VC Practice Groups added, “Day to day, Nelson Mullins prides itself in its ability to drive value and create meaningful connections through the collective contacts and proprietary deal flow from all of its partners working collaboratively. The last two events in Nashville and the one coming to D.C. in March are concentrated, intense, one day examples of this value proposition.”

Bringing the UnConference model to Washington, D.C. was the brainchild of Health Tech Net, a networking group founded by David Main, a senior partner in the Healthcare Group of Nelson Mullins. Mr. Main remarked, “Combining the reputation and prior successes of the UnConference with the thought leadership, network, and resources of Health Tech Net should lead to even more investment in healthcare and technology companies in the D.C. area and nationwide.”

Companies in the healthcare sector and technology sector who plan to raise anywhere from $100,000 to more than $5 million in capital within the next 12 to 18 months are invited to apply to participate. Investable companies will be selected and matched with the right investor, based on company applications and investor profiles. Investors who attend will include not only angel investors and venture capital firms, but also hospitals, health systems, HIT companies and other strategic investors and potential joint venture partners.

“We are excited to be working with Nelson Mullins and Health Tech Net to bring the Capital UnConference model developed in Nashville to expand the access to meaningful capital connections within our nation’s entrepreneurial ecosystem,” said Sam Lingo, Chief Operating Officer of the Nashville Entrepreneur Center.

The Health Tech Net Investor Day will take place on March 13, 2014, at the Nelson Mullins offices located at 101 Constitution Ave, NW, Suite 900, Washington, D.C. Interested companies, investors and sponsors can apply to participate at www.capitalunconference.com.
