"The CED Tech Conference is a key annual event for investors looking for deal flow. It allows funds to meet multiple entrepreneurs and reconnect with peers all in one place. I am based out of Atlanta, but Fulcrum recently opened a Chapel Hill office led by Alston Gardner because we see the area as a hotspot for entrepreneurial activity. I will be personally inviting fellow outer-region investors to join me at the conference this year."
