Speed Venture Summit

Speed Venture Summit

Bringing together New Hampshire’s early stage growth companies, regional investors and tech influencers.


About SVS
The 2018 event was held on November 28th at the Manchester Country Club in Bedford, NH and included a 90-minute speed pitching session, where 21 of New Hampshire’s best and brightest startups pitched their companies to 18 investors representing angel groups, various funds and VC firms from all over New England. 

The participating companies were equally diverse, representing bio tech, ed tech, diagnostics and therapeutics, software and consumer products. Over 140 attendees then joined for the networking reception and fireside chat with Deb Kemper of the Boston Chapter of Golden Seeds.
