We know- entrepreneurs are busy. So we've packed three thoughtfully curated educational sessions designed with entrepreneurs in mind into a 3-hour morning educational track.

Our paramount event- a half-day premier conference for entrepreneurs, investors, and all innovation-minded individuals alike. This event will feature compelling keynote speakers, live pitch Q&A sessions between finalists and VC judges, and valuable networking opportunities. ​

To wrap up the event, all attendees are invited to join us at a rooftop venue, where cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres will be served.

5:00PM-7:00PM

Last year, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback about our pre-conference semifinalist pitch competition at Yeehaw Brewing where attendees got to cast their vote for the pitch finalists to be featured at NEXT Venture Pitch 2021. So, this year, we're taking it up a notch- and taking it out to the ballgame. 

 

​The 2022 NEXT Venture Pitch Screening Party will take place on September 8th at Fluor Field in conjunction with the Greenville Drive during their annual Innovation & Entrepreneurship Night.
