Venture Forums

Each WNYVA forum features presentations by two "feature" companies and several "one-minute presenters" that are seeking private equity investment. 

Presenters are pre-screened and are some of the up-and-coming businesses in our region. Our forums also present the opportunity to network with angel investors, venture capital firms and other business professionals. Non-members are welcome.

Questions? Please contact us anytime.
