What to Expect

CEG and our partners work with start-ups to coach their team prior to the venture pitch that then ends in an open public pitch to regional investors and business leaders.  There may be as many as 3 coaching sessions.

Up to two entrepreneurs/start-ups will showcase their companies to a panel of investors, entrepreneurs and business leaders, as well as the general public.  Following a 12-minute PowerPoint presentation, the panel will ask the presenter questions and provide feedback.  Video of the presentation is provided to the start-ups to help them review and improve their pitches. 


All VentureB programming is currently being held virtually. Program details will be announced prior to each event.
