VentureClash Finalist Packet
Congratulations again on making it to the VentureClash 2019 finals! Now, the real work begins. As you plan your trip to New Haven in October, we wanted to provide you with a few reminders, resources and action items that will be important to review and complete over the next several weeks.
The finalist checklist is your master file over the next couple of weeks. It contains each item that you will be responsible for completing as we approach the finals.
As you prepare to submit your finals presentation, we’ve attached the guidelines for your review. For those that attended the semifinalist Connecticut visit, the presentation guidelines will look very familiar. The deck you prepared for that visit should be a good foundation for your final deck.
Within the platform, you will have to provide the following: Presenter name, presenter title, presenter bio, company description, hi-res logo and hi-res headshot and commitment to attend the finals in Connecticut October 16–17. The information you provide on the platform will be used to populate the event program, so make sure the information is final once you upload.
Now that you’ve been named a finalist, let’s make it official. Please register you and any member of the team who will be attending the finals in New Haven on Wednesday, October 16, and Thursday, October 17.
We encourage you to share your great news with the world. We’ve included a template press release to get you started. If you’d like a custom quote from Matt McCooe, just let Lauren.Carmody@ctinnovations.com know and we will create it.
We have reserved a number of hotel rooms for VentureClash finalists. The rooms will be at The Blake Hotel. To reserve your hotel room in the block, call 203.390.5352, and be sure to mention it’s for the VentureClash finals.
