From the “ROAD”
The Azafran team continues to be active in virtual conferences, pitch days, and online events
As we shift to attending and hosting virtual events, this dynamic continues to be a crucial element helping us to deliver on the Azafran investment thesis. Through this work, our team stays on top of the latest trends, companies, and partner opportunities, especially away from the obvious venues in the world.

Techstars Iowa Pitch/Demo Day
As is the mantra at Azafran Capital Partners, we look to underserved markets for the best emerging companies and Techstars Iowa did not disappoint. While none of the companies pitching were in the Azafran wheelhouse, we were impressed as always by the quality and diversity on display by the Techstars team.
