The Technology Council of Southern California has just opened up applications for their annual VentureNet conference. The Technology Council’s annual VentureNet event has been a great opportunity through the years for great companies to pitch venture capitalists from both Southern California and Silicon Valley.
What very few entrepreneurs realize is that just applying to VentureNet is a great way to get exposure for your company, because all of the venture capitalists on the panel review the PowerPoint and business pitches submitted into the conference. (I’ve been on the selection committee for a few years, and I’d highly recommend serious entrepreneurs submit their info early–it’s really a great opportunity). It’s very rare that you’ll get your business in front of these capital providers so directly.
