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 our attending investors one of the most important aspects of the 3RVF is networking with their peers, sourcing investments and learning from one another. Investor Link is an exclusive event during the Fair for investors to network with one another.
All investors registered to participate in Venture Connection will have exclusive access to schedule Investor Link meetings.
