Partner Funds (2021)

Spending 24 hours and meeting this many founders and investors in Middle America is fascinating.

Kathleen Craig, HTMA

If you are a company or an investor and you want to meet 15-20 potential partners, why not do it in 24-48 hours period through UNMET as opposed to over weeks and getting on planes.

Brian Zimbelman, Crawley Ventures

Meeting 12-15 companies within our thesis and co-investors in 24 hours is highly efficient.

INVESTOR

There are tremendous opportunities at UNMET as these companies are here to grow and look to be connected with people. UNMET is a great way to get our names out there and assist companies through that growth/transition.
