COLORADO SPRINGS - High Altitude Investors, a Colorado Springs-based organization of accredited investors, in association with Colorado PERA's Mile High Fund, will hold an investment education event Aug. 22 featuring investors from regional and national venture capital firms.

The event is intended to provide local investors, entrepreneurs and community leaders with a better understanding of venture capital and its role in supporting fast-growing companies, organizers said.

The event, to be held at The Broadmoor hotel, immediately follows the High Altitude Investors Forum.

"Investors and community leaders here need a better understanding of the opportunities and the role of risk capital in growing more viable local startup companies, and venture capital funds from outside of our community need a better understanding of the great potential to source attractive venture investment opportunities here," said Bill Miller, founder and managing partner of PV Ventures.

"This forum is a fabulous opportunity to connect our community with and learn from an all-star group of successful venture capital investors who are willing to engage with our community."

Participating investors include:

  • Melford Carter, principal at Credite Suisse Customized Fund Investment Group

  • David Cremin, founder and managing partner of DFJ Frontier

  • Kirk Holland, managing director of Access Venture Partners

  • Bill McAleer, founder and managing director of Voyager Capital

  • Bill Miller, founder and managing partner of PV Ventures

  • David Odom, principal of Arsenal Venture Partners

  • Gregory Smith, executive director of Colorado PERA
