The WPI Venture Forum serves innovative entrepreneurs with programs and resources relevant to technology entrepreneurship. Programs are open to the public, but one can become a member of the organization for an annual fee and enjoy free admission to events.
Our audience includes new and experienced entrepreneurs, business owners, founders, executives, service providers, investors, faculty members, students, and job seekers developing and/or servicing new technologies and/or technology ventures. Attend if you are seeking venture partners, investment, networking opportunities, peer advice, professional services, and knowledge through our speakers, business case presentations, and case critiques.
WPI Venture Forum activities include ten Monthly Programs, workshops and networking events, an annual Business Plan Contest and a Five-Minute Pitch Contest. The monthly programs include a speaker (or panel of speakers), case presentations, case critique, Spotlight on Entrepreneurs (a one-minute funding pitch opportunity), networking, and refreshments. Workshops are centered around a topic related to tech entrepreneurship and networking events are held throughout the region and typically include a facility tour.
Directed by a volunteer Executive Board comprised of regional business and service organization leaders, many of whom are entrepreneurial alumni, the WPI Venture Forum is a program of the Collaborative for Entrepreneurship & Innovation in the School of Business at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Students are encouraged to attend to learn about entrepreneurship, and through observation and practice, to develop soft skills such as networking, elevator pitch, and an understanding of US social business customs.
