The countdown is on and Venturefest South will be open for business this Thursday

Over 700 tickets have gone for this inaugural event at Winchester Guildhall and we couldn’t be more excited to bring you the following:

Featuring keynotes from Uber, Innovate UK and Innovation Zone.
Open mic pitching sessions for the chance to win a start-up support package and slot in the Pitchfest.
Innovation showcase featuring some of the best new technology in the region.
Exhibitors to help you with every aspect of turning your innovation into a fully-fledged business.

Motivating talks to help you with every aspect of your venture, from R&D tax relief to finding inspiration.

Watch entrepreneurs pitching for investment and find out about new ways of funding for your innovation.

Hear short, snappy talks followed by speed networking sessions. This is the place to share ideas.

We’re not confining ourselves to the walls of the Guildhall – outside you’ll find exhibits including an F1 car, ambulance simulation and broadcasting truck.

The programme is available on the website, and in the lead-up to the event we’ll be revealing details on each of the pitching companies, innovators, exhibitors and speakers.

Keep checking back for information, and make sure to be following us @VenturefestSO and tweeting with #VFSouth17 to let us know what you’re most looking forward to.


And DON’T FORGET: tickets are still available here, so make sure you send this on to your colleagues to show them what they could be doing on Thursday.
