10th Annual IW & EY Investment Report
March 23 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Innovation Works and Ernst & Young LLP (EY US) are proud to present our tenth annual review of Pittsburgh’s technology investment landscape. This report provides a comprehensive review of investment and exit activity in the Pittsburgh region from 2011—2021.
Starting at 9:30 a.m. on March 23, Rich Lunak, IW President & CEO, and Leon Hoffman, Managing Partner of EY Pittsburgh, will offer brief, virtual comments highlighting what’s happening in the Pittsburgh region from an investment perspective. Then we’ll feature an intimate discussion with Rimsys Founder & CEO James Gianoutsos, Andrew Hedin Partner at Bessemer Venture Partners and IW Chief Investment Officer Ven Raju.
In 2021, Rimsys closed on a $16 million series A financing round led by legendary Bessemer Venture Partners to support the company’s product line and geographic expansion. Learn more from James and Ven about appealing to investors, what makes Pittsburgh so interesting for venture capitalists and what happens after you land that deal and put the money to work.
