Keiretsu Forum to Hold Information Session In Richardson Texas Innovation Quarter

Cindi Sutera | Published on 10/11/2022

The 2021 HALO report issued by the Angel Resource Institute again ranked Keiretsu Forum the #1 most active investment group nationwide by number of deals. Additionally, the report notes that the Keiretsu Forum network is extremely active with deals in almost every state & region of the US, finishing #1 or #2 in every region except New York. On Tuesday, November 1, 2022, Keiretsu Forum South-East and the City of Richardson’s Innovation Quarter will co-host an informational event to explore the benefits of establishing a Keiretsu Forum Chapter in the greater Dallas area.

Keiretsu Forum opened Chapters in Atlanta and South Florida in the last 5 years and has looked for strategic opportunities to grow the region. The pandemic accelerated the distribution of startup ecosystems that were traditionally anchored in the northeast and along the west coast. This growth trend is expected to continue. As identified in the HALO report, Texas now ranks in the Top 5 when rating individual states by total transaction volume (1. California; 2. New York; 3. Massachusetts; 4. Florida; and 5. Texas).

This event is an excellent opportunity to learn about Keiretsu’s unique approach to identifying and funding exceptional early-stage investment opportunities. The event is open to all active accredited investors, family offices, venture capitalists, and companies focused on building the entrepreneurial ecosystem in the Dallas area.
