The conversation at the MidAmerica Healthcare Venture Forum earlier this week was all about change: the new business model of healthcare; new investment approaches from venture debt to venture philanthropy; new dynamics in the angel and venture relationship; new opportunities like big data and genomics; and much more.

Like healthcare itself, the conference continues to change and evolve. It is a venture forum at its core. But today MidAmerica is really a national summit for all investors that are helping to advance healthcare’s next medical breakthroughs.

So next year we’re going to have a new name that keeps pace with the new healthcare investor landscape. The MidAmerica Healthcare Venture Forum will be known as MedCity INVEST.

INVEST remains grounded in a strong partnership between Breaking Media, MedCity News’ owners, and the Mid-America Healthcare Investors Network. We’ll also be back in Chicago – providing the Midwest with its only national healthcare investing conference. And we’ll continue to draw in more of the nation’s VCs, angels, strategics and anyone interested in getting unique insight and great dealflow.

But you’ll also see a bigger conference that is the natural next stop for investors and entrepreneurs after JP Morgan.

INVEST was a fantastic conference this year and we expect even better things in 2016.
