WPI Venture Forum
The WPI Venture Forum is a monthly program held in the WPI Campus Center September-June from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on the second Tuesday of the month. The programs typically draw 120-175 tech-based business owners, inventors, and innovators. Faculty members and students from WPI are invited to experience this dynamic environment of entrepreneurs, investors, and service providers free of charge. Sponsors, service providers, and many early-stage investors value the networking opportunities with our faculty and students, where they learn about student projects, faculty research, and seek interns for summer positions or problem-solving.
WPI Venture Forum is more than just Monthly Programs. Newsletters, off-site networking events, a weekly radio program, an annual five-minute pitch contest, Spotlight on Entrepreneurs, and an annual Business Plan Contest are among the many benefits of engagement in the Forum. Audience members may make a 60-second funding pitch for their technology ideas, products, or companies during Spotlight on Entrepreneurs held every month at campus programs.
