Where Southern California’s Top Entrepreneurs Meet the Country’s Top Investors
VentureNet 2017 is Southern California's premiere event, forum and conference for raising capital and forming strategic partnerships for early stage and start-up businesses and entrepreneurs in the technology, content and media industries. It brings together the region's most promising companies with investors and prospective partners from around the country. Entrepreneurs have the opportunity to receive coaching from seasoned investors, to pitch their companies and business plans to potential investors and to network with other attendees and participants.
Dating back to 1996, VentureNet has attracted technology entrepreneurs from across the technology spectrum looking for investments to fuel their business. 2017 will again bring exciting companies to the stage to pitch their innovative technology.
A committee of Southern California venture capitalists, angel investors and conference sponsors select the 16 companies that will be invited to present at VentureNet. They will consider ventures from start-ups to later-stage operating companies on the basis of each company's:
- target customers
- target market and how they meet the needs of that market
- competitive advantage
- management team
- potential growth rate and size
- financial model including the company's stage and the amount of capital being raised, and
- opportunity to create superior shareholder value
