UP Conference is an opportunity for new startups, entrepreneurs, and businesses to meet the angels, VC’s, and Startup Founders in our local community. In addition to networking with like-minded individuals in the community, UP Conference is also a learning opportunity for both students and entrepreneurs to learn directly from Angels, VC’s, and successful founders themselves.
Meet the Founders
We’ve invited successful Founders (each with at least 1 exit) to share their stories and journey on how they reached their level of success. Learn how they got their idea off the ground, how they received their first round of funding, and ultimately, how they ran a successful company/team.
Meet the Investors
We’ve invited the most influential and respected Angel Investors and VC’s in South Jersey/Philly to share tips, advice, strategies, and teach you about raising capital and running your startup.
Supporting Our Organization
This event is hosted by Waterfront Ventures, a non-profit organization dedicated to building a thriving culture for young startups on the Waterfront. 100% Funds from ticket sales and sponsors will go directly towards building programs (list of programs we're working on), future events, and providing resources such as that are otherwise inaccessible for motivated students in low-income neighborhoods.
