How it Works
The annual Venture Madness Conference brings together investors with the region’s most promising companies. Companies selected to present at the event are chosen by an expert selection panel, and pitch to an audience of nearly 300 attendees on stage at the live event.
Selected companies receive invaluable company exposure and mentorship from investors, business leaders, seasoned executives and other successful entrepreneurs. In addition, the conference provides a platform for networking between investors, presenting companies, Venture Madness partners and other attendees. During the event, companies pitch for a chance to win cash and build a network with accredited investors from across the country.
Please Note: If your company is selected to present, your CEO will be required to attend our Presenting Company Orientation and Mentor Sessions held in in the two months prior to the conference.
OUR COVID POLICY
The primary focus of Venture Madness is the health and safety of our attendees and partners. We are closely monitoring national and local conditions, including following the recommendations from the CDC and the State of Arizona Governor’s office and health agencies. We will err on the side of caution and notify attendees of any updates as event dates approach. We will make masks and sanitizer available at all in-person events.
