NEXT Venture Summit Returns on September 22, 2022
We can't wait to welcome you back to the Upstate for the 7th annual NEXT Venture Summit.
The conference you know and love as Venture Pitch will return this fall as the NEXT Venture Summit, a 1-day conference including educational workshops from industry experts, a showcase of the top 10 companies in the Carolinas, and more.
For the 3rd year running, the Judge's Choice from the NEXT Venture Summit Showcase will advance to pitch on-stage at Venture Atlanta in October.
NEXT Venture Summit
Greenville ONE Center
Our core audiences are high-growth entrepreneurs and their teams, hungry for information and resources that can catapult them to their next stage of growth.
For this group, we’ve lined up three thoughtfully-curated educational sessions designed with entrepreneurs in mind into the morning educational track.
Attendance for these sessions is capped to enable the most productive learning experience for attendees.
Our signature event- a half-day premier conference for entrepreneurs, investors, and innovation-minded individuals alike. Featuring 1:1 interaction between the top startups in the Carolinas and the top VCs from across the country, compelling keynote speakers and valuable networking opportunities.

To put an appropriate cap on the day’s events, all attendees are invited to join us for Happy Hour at a rooftop restaurant in beautiful Downtown Greenville. Cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvre will be served. Entry is free with the purchase of a ticket to the afternoon conference.
Pre-Conference Screening Party
The Greenville Drive at Fluor Field

Last year, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback about our pre-conference semifinalist pitch competition where we asked the public to weigh in on who THEY think should be on stage at NEXT Venture Summit.
So, this year, we’re taking it up a notch- and taking it out to the ballgame.
The 2022 NEXT Venture Summit Screening Party will take place on September 8th at Fluor Field in conjunction with the Greenville Drive during their annual Innovation & Entrepreneurship Night and give attendees a voice in who will be the Top Ten venture-ready startups showcased during the Summit.
