The Venture Bplan Series

The Venture Bplan Series is a collaboration of the Center for Economic Growth (CEG) and Rensselaer’s Emerging Ventures Ecosystem (EVE).

This regularly-scheduled forum at RPI's Heffner Alumni House is designed for entrepreneurs to get visibility to the region's angel and institutional investors, business service providers, advisors, students, faculty, alumni and the early stage business community.

The forum is a great place for newly formed start-up companies to make their first public appearance. Up to two businesses will be selected to present in front of a panel of investors, entrepreneurs, business leaders and the general public at each meeting.

Following a 15 minutes PowerPoint presentation the panel will ask the presenter questions and provide feedback.
