Venture Connection serves as the focal point of the 3 Rivers Venture Fair. During this event, investors host tables to engage with entrepreneurs matched to them based on criteria such as capital needs and industry. Sessions are divided into segments, allowing each investor to meet with a select group of well-screened entrepreneurs, with the applications rigorously reviewed by our Selection Committee to ensure the quality of showcased technology ventures.

Entrepreneurs are allotted time for an "elevator pitch" to the investors. Subsequently, investors elaborate on their criteria for prospects, share insights into their respective funds, and discuss investment strategies. In cases of mutual interest, private one-on-one meetings can be scheduled.


For the convenience of our attendees we have reserved a block of rooms in the Wyndham Grand Pittsburgh, the venue of the 2024 3RVF. This beautiful hotel is where Pittsburgh's framed three rivers meet soaring skyscrapers, and awaits to offer you an inspired experience in the heart of downtown.
