Venturefest South 2019 will take place on 29 March 2019 at the Ageas Bowl in Hedge End, Southampton.
The event brings together top talent from the region to demonstrate technologies and innovations, allow start-ups to pitch for investment and match entrepreneurs with the right organisations to take their businesses to the next level.
Are you an innovator with a ground-breaking new business idea? Would you like to gain expertise, promote your business and meet investors? Innovators have the opportunity to get a free innovator exhibitor stand at the innovation showcase.
The event will feature expert speakers, innovation demonstrations, investor pitching session, the Young Entrepreneurs’ Zone, informal open mic pitching sessions, as well as workshops and opportunities for networking.
This year, Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council has joined the festival steering group, alongside local organisations such as DeskLodge, Tech Juice and the SETsquared Partnership.
The Council’s Economic Development team is inviting start-ups in Basingstoke and Deane, who are interested in taking part in the event, to contact them on firstname.lastname@example.org before Wednesday 16 January.
