The Venture Forum - 5 Minute Pitch
Eight finalists are chosen from all applicants to present on April 23. Finalists get 1-on-1 coaching to prepare for their presentations. All applicants are eligible to participate in the Innovation Showcase April 23 during the event. Each of the past 3 years, over 225 investors, start-ups and service-providers have attended this event.
This is The Venture Forum’s 12th Annual 5-Minute Pitch Contest. It has been incredibly powerful in getting startups the outlet that they need to advance their business to the next level.
Eight (8) companies will pitch for the audience and judges. In addition, the room will have approximately 20 other businesses displaying their ideas in an Innovation Showcase before the event and during networking time.
In the last 4 years, two 5-Minute Pitch CEOs have been chosen by Forbes magazine as their "30 Under 30" award recipients.
