Venture capitalist, author to keynote capital conference

Paul Ahlstrom, a venture capitalist and author of “Nail It Then Scale It: The entrepreneurs guide to creating and managing breakthrough innovation,” will be the keynote speaker at the Great Plains Capital Conference next month.

The conference, to be held Sept. 13 at the Wichita Marriott, is the area’s only venture capital conference that links entrepreneurs with investors.

Ahlstrom’s 12:15 p.m. speech will be followed by nearly a dozen entrepreneurs who have been selected to pitch their businesses to an audience of venture capitalists.

GPCC will end with a reception featuring Karen Linder, author of “The Women of Berkshire Hathaway – Lessons Learned from Warren Buffet’s Female CEOs & Directors.”
