We are proud to present the SVForum Investor Forum. The Winter Session is now closed--check back soon for our next open call for submissions! If you have questions, please email Charlene@svforum.org.
This program highlights emerging technology companies at early and late stage. SVForum’s success and ability to attract entrepreneurs is reflected by our long-standing history. We excel in helping to create an environment of advanced learning and peer-to-peer networking through our events and programs.
Whether it's an introduction to a speaker, a one-on-one meeting with a venture capitalist, or participation in our Investor Forum, you'll have an opportunity for success. Since November of 2002, SVForum has played a role in obtaining funding for companies, both through the Investor Forum and other programs for entrepreneurs. This year alone, companies participating in the Investor Forum have received over $35 million.
As an SVForum member, you are eligible to apply to the Investor Forum by submitting a one-page executive summary for review by the SVForum venture community. It will be reviewed by a committee comprised of experienced Venture Capitalists and angels. If chosen, you will be invited to present at the next Investor Forum. Apply now!
Note: You may apply up to two times per year, if you have made significant changes. You may only present once, however, unless you are going for an additional round of funding. Thank you!
If you are a VC or angel investor and would like to be invited to attend, please contact Charlene@svforum.org.
