Started by the Venture Club of Indiana, The Innovation Showcase will celebrate its 12th Anniversary this year. It is Indiana’s premier event for capital sources to connect with fund-able companies.
With the severe limitations of in person gatherings and uncertainty of the spread of the virus, the decision was made to host the Showcase virtually. Unfortunate not to be in person, but fortunate in that it will enable the Club to market the event much more broadly, throughout the Midwest and to both Coasts… really anywhere in the world. Companies, business executives, venture capitalists and entrepreneurs will attend the event. Our “stage” will provide a robust experience and virtual/zoom networking between attendees and entrepreneurs. Check out the features of the platform on the Innovation Showcase Website through the link below. The “stage” will be open for your interaction by the last week in September. Be sure to register, create your profile and begin networking once the “doors” open.
Amid the uncertainty and economic shutdown caused by the Covid 19 virus that engulfed our world, the Venture Club was unable to execute on our traditional regional pitch contests in 2020. In order to yet bring 20 highly qualified entrepreneurial companies to our now Virtual Innovation Showcase, we connected with 10 Indiana Venture Investor VCI members to ask for nominations from their portfolio of companies.
Each company will submit their prerecorded 3 minute pitch for judging no later than September 18th. The actual judging will be completed prior to the Showcase. All pitches will be available for view by attendees within each companies’ own “virtual exhibit room” housed on the virtual platform prior to the actual Showcase.
