From August 6th through 9th of 2018, the VENTUREOUT team powered up our second New Media program! In this new media tech one-week market exploration program, startups learned how to launch and raise capital and got connected with some of the top tech influencers and investors in NYC. They went on many office visits, participated in tons workshops, and made lots of potential connections!
A One-Week Hyper Accelerator Program:
Our one-week hyper-accelerator was an opportunity for the most promising early-stage technology companies to become immersed in the tech communities of New York, meeting with leading U.S. startups, corporations, and venture investors. We empowered our international entrepreneurs with the education, resources, and connections needed to successfully raise capital to launch their business in the U.S. market.
Pictured below: some of the highlights of the program.

The Pitch Night
The pitch night is the capstone of our one-week programs. We start with networking, cocktails, and hors-d’oeuvres. Following a round of introductions, each startup pitches for 2 minutes and receives feedback from each investor on the panel. The night is capped off with more networking and refreshments.
Our investor panel featured:
- Michelle Nacouzi from Indicator Ventures
