2010 Central Valley Stock Exchange
Thursday, October 21, 2010 from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM (PDT)
Clovis, United States
The Central Valley Stock Exchange (CVSE) is a mock “Stock Exchange” event showcasing Central Valley small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Upon registering, each guest receives $1 million in CVBI Bucks that he/she can invest in any amount to any combination of companies; plus one special “golden ticket” that represents that guest’s “Super Investment” in a single industry. The “golden ticket” allows that guest to be a real “Venture Capitalist!”
During the trading session, guests take on the role of “High Stakes Investors,” and are encouraged to see demonstrations and “pitches” from all the entrepreneurs, investing their $1 Million CVBI Bucks as they see fit. Some may give all of their $1 Million to one company, while others diversify. Investors will want to invest in the companies they believe has what it takes to “make it big!”
CVSE provides a chance for local businesses and community leaders to meet and mingle with the Valley’s brightest Entrepreneurs and Start-Up Business, while enjoying excellent food and wine. Therefore, everyone benefits. CVBI, SBDC and WET Incubator gain name recognition; entrepreneurs gain potential sponsorship leads; attendees gain knowledge about new businesses and how they can benefit from their services; and the community benefits from innovation and technology that revitalizes the Central Valley.
Fun. Exciting. Enlightening. Don’t miss it!
