The Central Valley Venture Forum is currently seeking applicants for its annual Valley Entrepreneur Showcase to be held Nov. 3.
The aim of the forum is to bring together financial leaders to discuss current economic issues and opportunities for growth. The event will feature five new or early-stage businesses that present a pitch to a panel of investors to compete for Best in Show.
“The showcase is a great opportunity for new businesses to reach potential investors and perfect their pitches,” Dr. Robert Harper, dean of the Craig School of Business at Fresno State, said in a statement. “Several businesses, including Central Valley favorites P*de*Q and Amalia’s Cocina have won Best of Show, received funding and become the subject of many success stories.”
The forum will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Clovis Memorial District Auditorium.
Ventures looking to raise capital can apply at ValleyVentureForum.com. Applications are open through Sept. 30.
