London calling - Midlands' top investment prospects heading to capital for first time

 Liz Hartney

November 2nd 2011 - London’s investment community has an opportunity to meet up to 12 pre-screened, high-growth and investment-ready businesses from across the Midlands for free, on November 22nd at the University of Chicago, Booth School of Business, during the Connect Midlands Investment Conference (CMIC) 2011.

CMIC showcases the best “second stage” investment propositions in the Midlands to an audience of investors and professionals, each looking for between £0.5m and £5m via an eight minute pitch. The event runs from 1.45pm until 6pm.

John Griffiths, director of Connect Midlands said: “This is the first time that we have ever brought CMIC down to London and to the heart of the investment community. The companies pitching at CMIC 2011 range from aerospace to pharmaceuticals, to green-tech.

“We are keen to safeguard the identity of the presenting companies in order to give the investors in the room the first opportunity to meet and assess them but an outline of what to expect can be found at

“Whilst the companies vary hugely in terms of their sectors and backgrounds, they do have three key things in common; a strong management team, they are “investment ready” now and of course, they are based here in the Midlands.”

To date, Connect Midlands has helped 300 companies to raise over £200m since 2001.
