Calling all innovators, entrepreneurs and investors… Only two weeks to go until the inaugural Venturefest South Event.

The University of Portsmouth is on the hunt to find innovators with the latest and greatest ideas, inventions and new thinking for the first Venturefest South event, which takes place in Winchester on 9th March 2017.

The Venturefest Network strengthens connectivity between innovators, investors and entrepreneurs.  The University of Portsmouth is proud to be one of the Founding Partners who have been working together to bring Venturefest to our region.

Venturefest South’s inaugural event, sponsored by Irwin Mitchell, will shine a light on the South’s innovation economy, spark new ideas and help entrepreneurs find funding.  Innovators will have the opportunity to show off their products, services and ideas in four different ways:

  1. Sign up to an open mic pitching session
  2. Pitch to investors
  3. Show off your innovation
  4. Turn up and be part of the day

Our aim is to develop the South’s innovation hub, and we invite you to play an important part in the discussion.
