Early Stage Investors from around the country come to UC Irvine to Share Their Wisdom and Their Money
Orange County Venture Capital Fast Pitch to Connect Investors and Entrepreneurs
The Venture Capital Fast Pitch Conference will continue their sold-out series where they bring in local and out-of-town investors to judge the pitches of early-stage companies looking to raise capital. They have investors from Silicon Valley, Southern California and throughout the country where they will introduce them to entrepreneurs and discuss what it really takes to get them to write you a check!
The first 25 entrepreneur attendees to sign up will also get the option to pitch their business idea in 60 seconds in front of the investor panel and receive feedback and a possible investment.
Along with the pitch competition, there is an educational and networking component to the event. All attendees will be gaining an understanding of what investors are looking for in the Southern California market and what our entrepreneurs are building. .
