Where Great Investors Find Exceptional Ventures

October 28 & 29, 2020

Online (TBD)

COVID-19 Update

Dear PVCA Members & Friends of the 3 Rivers Venture Fair,

The Pittsburgh Venture Capital Association Board has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic updates over the past few months, particularly as they relate to in-person events. After much deliberation, the decision has been made to postpone the in-person 3RVF until October 2021. We have not come to this conclusion lightly, but the health and safety of our members and attendees are our number one concern.

We are currently exploring virtual alternatives for the 2020 3RVF, so please keep October 28-29 circled on your calendar. Over the course of the next 2 months, we expect to have in place a new agenda that is designed for a virtual format, along with new sponsorship opportunities.

Entrepreneur applications & nominations will remain open for the Venture Connection portion of this virtual 3RVF.

We appreciate your patience as we navigate this alternate format for the 2020 3 Rivers Venture Fair.

Stay well,

Kelly Szejko
President - Pittsburgh Venture Capital Association

The 3 Rivers Venture Fair is the premier venture conference in the Ohio Valley region. Every 18 months, hundreds of investors, entrepreneurs & top-tier service providers from around the world gather in Pittsburgh for this two-day meeting of ideas & money.

As a testament to the Fair's success, we have hit some impressive milestones:

raised by 3RVF participating companies
Venture Connection meetings since 2016
of 3RVF participating companies attract capital

This is just the start, with Pittsburgh on the rise as a leading innovation hub, the 3RVF will only continue to grow. The 3RVF is expected to attract 1,000+ investors & innovators from across the country, we hope you will be counted among them.

Venture Connection is the event at the center of the 3 Rivers Venture Fair. In this exciting format, investors host tables to meet with groups of entrepreneurs that have been matched with them based on capital needs, industry and other key criteria. Each session is broken into 20 minute segments giving each investor the chance to meet with up to 36 well-screened, capital-seeking entrepreneurs.

Entrepreneurs must apply to participate in Venture Connection. These applications are then reviewed by our Selection Committee to ensure that Venture Connection will be a showcase of promising ventures.

Entrepreneurs will be given time to give an elevator pitch to the investors. Investors will then share more about what they look for in prospects and discuss their respective funds and investment strategies.

Through this process we make many introductions of successful future partnerships.
