    BOISE, Idaho, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- The Intermountain Venture Forum, an
 annual event that connects early-stage companies from around the West with
 venture capitalists and angel investors, is seeking up to 15 entrepreneurs to
 present at the event October 5-6.
     If selected, presenting companies will have an opportunity to introduce
 their product, their market and themselves to prospective investors in a
 series of formal business plan presentations and panel discussions.  Companies
 wishing to present can complete an online application and learn more about the
 Forum at www.IVFBoise.org.
     "Every year, the Intermountain Venture Forum grows in scale and stature,"
 says John Hale, KPMG International Managing Partner and Chairman of this
 year's forum.  "This is the major leagues for venture-capital funding, where
 the heaviest hitters in the West, both the venture capitalists and the angel
 investors, come to meet the most promising companies in the region."
     Now in its seventh year, the IVF has evolved into one of the premier
 events of its kind, attracting the region's most promising companies. In 2004,
 the Forum featured 14 presenting companies from six Western states and more
 than 30 of the West's top institutional investors representing $4 billion in
 investment capital.
     The IVF is hosted by the Boise Valley Economic Partnership, Boise's
 regional economic development organization.  In 2005, Boise was ranked #1 in
 Forbes Magazine's list of "Top Places for Business and Careers" and #2 in Inc.
 Magazine's list of "The Best Places for Doing Business in America."
     In addition to the formal business plan presentation, the IVF will include
 panel discussions featuring leading experts on topics such as, "Creative
 Cities, Companies, and Economies," "Venture Capital & Angel Investors: What Do
 We Look For?," and "Movers & Stayers: Doing Business in the Intermountain
 West".
     An updated agenda of scheduled IVF events, application criteria and
 additional information about the Forum is available at www.IVFBoise.org.
