The Wayne Brown Institute and Utah's International Business Development Office will host the 2002 Investors Choice Global Venture Capital Conference on Feb. 5 and 6 at the Grand Summit Hotel at The Canyons in Park City.
The event will feature about 120 domestic and international venture and "angel" investors hearing a series of 10-minute pitches designed to open their checkbooks.
The institute has targeted potential companies in Australia, Canada, England, Germany, Japan and Mexico. Investor groups with interests in Asia are also expected.
Those investors are expected to be primarily interested in technology, including biotechnology, telecommunications and information technology, with a few funding more traditional businesses.
