gener8tor’s OnRamp Conference Series launches to drive innovation and investment in key industries

The OnRamp Conference Series was created to provide entrepreneurs at various stages of growth with access to high-level corporate leaders and investors. The first conferences in the series will kick off next week with OnRamp Insurance and OnRamp Education & Workforce Innovation taking place at Allianz Field in MinneapolisSaint Paul, Minnesota.

“These conferences were always meant to put startup founders and corporate venture capital and innovation executives in the same room to meet, share and connect,” said Troy Vosseller, gener8tor Co-founder.

And since 2013, the OnRamp Conference Series has advanced the national startup ecosystem. After going virtual during the last two years due to the pandemic, OnRamp returns with signature in-person events at sports stadiums across the country. The series also provides opportunities for startups and founders to discuss potential customer relationships, strategic partnerships and investment opportunities with established corporate partners.

The conference series features vertical-specific conference programming and curated one-on-one pitch sessions between startups and corporate venture capital and innovation executives in the suites and luxury boxes of each sports stadium where the conferences will take place.

This year, gener8tor has conferences covering the following industries:

  • Insurance: June 15, 2022 at Allianz Field in MinneapolisSaint Paul, Minn.

  • Education & Workforce Innovation: June 16, 2022 at Allianz Field in MinneapolisSaint Paul, Minn.

  • Agriculture: July 25 & 26, 2022 at State Farm Center in Champaign, Ill.

  • Healthcare: August 24 & 25, 2022 at Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Ala.

  • Manufacturing: October 4 & 5, 2022 at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Ind.

“Communities in this country won’t move forward unless their best and brightest—regardless of race, place or gender—are given the chance to have access to resources to put their ideas to work,” said Joe Kirgues, gener8tor co-founder. “The OnRamp Conference Series will provide a platform and foster connections to do that.”
