From February 4th through the 9th of 2018, the VentureOut team powered its first New Media Program, a hyper-acceleration program designed for New Media startups that are planning on accelerating their growth by leveraging all the opportunities available to them in NYC.
In this one-week program, the startups had the opportunity to venture around New York City to learn how to scale and raise capital and got connected with some of the top tech influencers and investors in NYC.
A One-Week Hyper Accelerator Program:
Our dense one week program was able to provide the New Media startups with not only core business knowledge, such as how to communicate your brand and product as well as fundamentals in fundraising, but also with meaningful connections they can count on to help them grow and scale their startups.
Pictured below: some of the highlights of the program.
Workshops & mentoring
investor office visits & Company insights
The Pitch Night
The pitch night is by far the highlight of the week. It is a night filled with great presentations from the startups, networking, and refreshments. The startups have two minutes to pitch their company which then follows insights from an all-star panel of investors. It is a night that cannot be missed and one to remember for both the audience and participants.
Our investor panel featured:
- Dessy Levinson from 645 Ventures
- Joshua Ness from Verizon
- Matthew Kittay from Empire Angels
- Stephen Silver from ARC Angel Fund
- Solomon Hailu from Tusk Ventures
