Venture West Conference

Date & Time

11.8.2018 8:00AM - 6:00PM


Morgan, Lewis & Bockius 1400 Page Mill Road Palo Alto, CA 94304

The Encore Event Covering The New Age of Venture Capital in the Built World.


The sold-out Venture Conference in Chicago was a huge hit.

In fact, it was such a huge hit that we’re hosting an encore Venture West Conference in San Francisco on Nov 8.

According to CB Insights research, 2016 and 2017 brought the highest number of “built tech” startup investments by VC funds (a 169% increase since 2012) in history. It appears we’ve entered a new age of investment interest in the space.

The Venture West Conference is a full-day premium event that brings together the built world’s leading investors and hottest startups for a deep dive into the trends and themes shaping the new era of Venture in our industry.

25 venture experts. 3+ hours of built-in networking. One small-group BW Insights Workshop. And more.

They are taking the pulse of the industry, scanning the room for the next technology that will make it BIG. They know how to get a business off the ground and bring in major cash.

Leaders of Corporate Innovation Programs and Investment Groups:
They see that technology is constantly changing. At any second, a new trend could disrupt their business. They need to stay ahead of the curve and make sure they are in control of industry changes. They know that the best way to dominate the industry is to invest in cutting-edge tech.

Venture Exclusive: Deal Book

To help our members get the most value out of this event, we’re going to be distributing a Deal Book to all attendees that will compile posts from the Venture Deal Board. For $500, any start-up can have their deal included in the Venture West Deal Book, even if they don’t plan to attend the conference. The Deal Book will be sent digitally to all attendees and physical copies will be available during the conference. It’s a great way to have a presence at one of our most popular events and get in front of investors specializing in the built space. Contact Cooper Smart at to learn more!
