Investors’ Circle, world’s largest early-stage impact investing network, goes “Beyond the Pitch” in Denver

(Denver, Colo., January 23, 2014) - Denver law firm, Moye White LLP, announced that it – and Colorado – will be hosting one of the nation’s most prestigious impact investing events for the first time when “Beyond the Pitch” comes to Denver on February 11. The event is one of four held annually and attracts investors from around the nation. Companies presenting at the event represent the energy and environment, impact software and media, education, global health and wellness and sustainable consumer product industries.

Investors’ Circle members – which include angel investors, family offices, foundations and funds – are dedicated to moving capital into early-stage, for profit companies that address social and environmental challenges. Members invested nearly $20 million in 52 companies in 2012-13. Investors’ Circle is described by Forbes magazine contributing writer, Marissa Feinberg, as “the biggest, oldest, and baddest early-stage investor network supporting enterprises that better our world.”

“Investors’ Circle chose Colorado for this event because our state has become a center for entrepreneurial and socially-conscious business activity,” said Moye White managing partner Tom List. “Our firm was selected to host “Beyond the Pitch” because of our recent B Corp Certification, our embrace of natural and sustainable products and our experience in working with early-stage companies.”

Unique to “Beyond the Pitch” events is that due diligence begins at the event and Investors’ Circle also facilitates follow-up after the event, leading to above-average investment rates.

As part of the event, Moye White will present a workshop for the entrepreneurs, providing important legal information at a critical point in the development of the early-stage companies.

While attendees are not required to be Investors’ Circle members, accredited investors who are interested in impact investing are encouraged to attend. Investor space is limited and discounts for early bird registration expire on January 31.

More information and to register.
