Investors will head to Little Rock, Ark., next month to take up issues facing the venture-capital industry, organizers said.

The National Association of Seed and Venture Funding's annual conference will look at how to find high-growth companies in a "fly over" region, among other topics, and will feature a keynote address by Eric Jones of CenterPoint Ventures.

The event will be held Sept. 17-19 at the Peabody Hotel in Little Rock.  For more information, visit www.nasvf.org.
