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.


“There are tremendous opportunities at UNMET with all the companies here as companies are growing and looking to be connected with people. Great way to get our names out there and assist companies through that transition.
