Description

We're excited to invite you to Venture University's first DEMO DAY with a twist...

What's the twist? We're doing a REVERSE DEMO DAY!

What's a REVERSE DEMO DAY? Glad you asked!

Venture University is an accelerator for investors, so rather than having startups pitch at DEMO DAY, we do a REVERSE DEMO DAY where the investors within the program pitch why they made the investments they made to a room full of investors, startups, and strategics.

Venture Univesity's first cohort is made up of 17 investors that were sourced from over 3,000+ applications (<1% acceptance rate), and they have formed five investment teams: 1) AI / Big Data, 2) AI / Robotics, 3) Consumer, 4) Enterprise, and 5) Marketplaces. Meet Venture University's Cohort 1 SF.

Each investment team will share their key findings and insights from their due diligence for why they got excited about the market, the team, the solution and strategy, and some of the key traction and metrics that made them say "yes" to invest.

The cohort represents three types of investors:

1) Top emerging individuals that are looking to break into VC / PE as analysts, associates, principals, and partners

2) Angel investors, family offices, and first time fund managers looking to improve their overall investment strategies

3) Entrepreneurs that are looking to join high growth businesses or start their next company

Over the past three months these investors have been part of Venture University's investment team, participating in an Investor Accelerator Program, where they have been sourcing investment opportunities, building their network among startups and investors, doing due diligence, and are preparing to make 1-5 investments by the end of the program.


Why Attend?

Are you an investor? Perfect! If you're looking at hiring individuals now or in the future to join your investment team or you're looking to join a new fund yourself, the cohort includes a highly curated selection of individuals that are looking to join investment funds or launch their own funds. Also, you can learn about new markets and companies through the eyes of other investors.

Are you an entrepreneur? Perfect! Come meet our investment team. Whether you're raising capital for your current company (pitch Venture University's investment team), looking to join a new company (we can recommend positions available within our portfolio of companies, or you can talk to some of the entrepreneurs within the cohort about working with their companies), or looking to partner with any of our portfolio companies (we can make intro's).

Are you a strategic? Perfect! Come learn about a few innovative companies that recently raised capital (they must be doing something right!) and see if there are any strategic partnerships or investment opportunities with these companies.


Event Location:

Venture University's REVERSE DEMO DAY in Silicon Valley will be hosted at Plug & Play Tech Center.
