Nutrition Capital Network, which has successfully organized five previous investor forums linking investors with growth companies and entrepreneurs, announces a special event for raw material suppliers and technology developers on November 11, 2009, the day before the SupplySide West 2009 show opens in Las Vegas.
Nutrition Capital Network’s Investor Meeting at SupplySide West will present 10-12 companies in nutrition ingredients, science, technology & marketing, sourced, screened and primed by Nutrition Capital Network. Companies that complete the free application process, committee selection and presentation review by NCN principals will present business plans at 15-minute intervals to an expected audience of 40-60 potential investors and strategic partners.
After the presentations, investors and companies will have the opportunity to network or meet one-on-one for private meetings. The half-day event is followed by a SupplySide West opening reception at The Venetian. SupplySide West is a 3-day exhibit and educational event recognized as the leading venue for nutrition industry suppliers to showcase their ingredients and services with programs and events designed for developers and marketers of foods, beverages, dietary supplements and cosmeceuticals.

The application process is free and all applicants will receive feedback from the selection committee. Accepted companies must pay a $700 registration fee to present at the meeting, allowing two company representatives to attend and participate in the meeting.
