Venturefest South 2022 Preview

It’s the time of the year again for the annual festival of innovation in the south, Venturefest South 2022.  It takes place at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton on 17th November 2022 and brings together top talent from across the region. It’s an opportunity to demonstrate technologies and innovations, for start-ups to pitch for investment, and to match entrepreneurs and existing businesses with the right organisations to take their businesses to the next level

This year’s event will feature a “Battle of the Pitches” contest, sponsored by CATAX, where 5 businesses will pitch, on the day at the Ageas Bowl, for a £10,000 prize and support package to enable them to move their business forward. You can check out here the video pitches from the long list of 15 companies, from which the 5 finalists will be selected, and give your opinion on which ones you think should make it to the final

Also, back by popular demand is the “Open Mic’ session where once again you, the south’s innovators and entrepreneurs, will be invited to step up, pitch big and impress the Open Mic audience in a bid to be named ‘Open Mic Winner’. So, the only question is, what have you got to say for yourself? Check out the details here

And do check out this year’s innovators, there’s a wide range from across the region with businesses that make jet packs to distillers of artisan spirits. See the full list here.
