Cadence Cash, a revolutionary digital payment platform aiming to support female and minority-owned startups, is pleased to announce its co-founder, Angel Inokon, a veteran software creator whose products have netted millions for companies like IBM and Playfirst, will be speaking at Venture Connect Conference next week.

Venture Connect, hosted by the Council for Entrepreneurial Development North Carolina (CEDNC), kicks off on March 29th. It is the premier event for North Carolina VCs, bringing together some of the most forward-thinking tech and biotech high-growth companies that are scaling in the southeast. Over 6 billion dollars has been raised by companies at the event.

“We are making history on the main stage. This is the largest Venture Connect in history and we want to use this platform to uplift businesses in need of funding,” says Inokon. “This conference comes at a time when small business owners are struggling to get the money they need to survive. Our platform supports owners – especially female and minority owners – who historically get a smaller piece of the venture pie. We are here to level the playing field.”

Our financing alternative unlocks working capital and provides access to cash quickly for minority-owned and female-owned small businesses. As co-founders of Cadence Cash, the Inokon siblings, Charles, Angel, and Cheryl, came together to help entrepreneurs, just like their parents, who needed help cutting through the red tape of achieving capital. At the conference, they will join the brightest minds to share their insights on the future of digital payments and discuss how the digital financing platform is revolutionizing the industry.

“Our Cadence Cash platform is designed to be user-friendly, with a simple and intuitive interface that makes it easy for anyone to use,” says Charles Inokon. “It also offers a range of advanced features, such as instant payments and low fees, that make it a powerful tool for businesses and individuals alike.”

At Venture Connect, companies will pitch live, sharing their company goals to gain visibility and potential funding in under five minutes. Each company will have the opportunity to share its story on one of our multiple stages, across two full days of pitching. The Inokons will discuss the unique features and benefits of Cadence Cash, and how the platform is changing the way people think about digital payments. They will also share their vision for the future of the industry, and how Cadence Cash is positioned to be a leader in this space.

“We’re excited to be speaking at the CEDNC Conference and to be launching the first version of Cadence Cash,” said Cheryl Inokon. “We believe that our platform has the potential to revolutionize the way people think about digital payments, and we’re eager to share our vision with the world.”
