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.
