Rochester Venture Challenge Application Deadline
January 30, 2017$150
The Rochester Venture Challenge is an annual startup business competition that encourages entrepreneurship and recognizes new, high growth ventures in the Greater Rochester Region.
The Rochester Venture Challenge sponsors a 4-week workshop focused on successful executive summary and investor presentation tactics. The workshop is instructed by business leaders and successful entrepreneurs.
Companies submit their executive summary as the first round of the competition. If chosen as a semi-finalist, participants give an investor presentation to a panel of judges. In the final round, five companies give a final presentation before a panel of notable Rochester entrepreneurial community members. The Rochester Venture Challenge culminates to an award ceremony at the annual Celebration of Entrepreneurship Luncheon with an audience of 300 attendees.
