NETWORKING | One-on-One MEETINGS

At our recent Venture Summit Virtual Connect, we hosted over 950 Meetings over 3 days and the investors were thrilled. At this summit our goal is to have over 2000. 

To ensure there is ample face to face interaction and make it the best possible experience for you and the startups, we are reminding you that all featured investors are to make themselves available for at least 6 meetings.  Each meeting lasts a maximum of 15 min.  

We ask you to please be considerate of the event structure and all of the attendees and participate proactively in the One-on-One meeting sessions as if this were a physical conference. We believe that you will find it extremely beneficial.

  1. We are using Brella for the matching and meeting app
  2. You will be able to schedule and host video sessions with the companies thru the app
  3. Please login to the meeting App with your unique link here https://next.brella.io/join/16RZ7S Your unique code is [16RZ7S]
  4. Fill in your preferences/profile for the types of companies you would like to meet
  5. See this 30 second clip on how to set up your networking preferences and request meetings: click here
  6. More details on the features in Brella here

We are scheduled to launch our networking tool by midweek.  This tool will allow you to schedule meetings with founders, other investors and other participants.


Remaining agenda for all days is available on the conference website and will be available at VentureSummit.tv closer to the Summit.
(more sessions are being added so check back)

General

– Structure

Presenters will be grouped with a handful of fellow presenters and paired with 2-3 VC coaches who will watch and give feedback on presentations.

Companies will then rotate to another set of VC Coaches and will have the chance to present a second time to receive feedback from them as well. 

Presentation length and feedback

Presentation time allotted is 7 minutes with an additional 2-3 minutes of feedback.

Room moderators are instructed to be vigilant and will monitor the time closely to facilitate all presenters’ equal opportunity.

The session is meant for you to give advice and feedback on the presentations. Further discussions can be had during One-on-One meetings.

Technical Instructions:

Please Signup and download Zoom if you aren’t already an active user.

Familiarize yourself with the Zoom platform. A Getting Started guide can be found here.

We recommend practice sessions over Zoom with colleagues/family/friends in order to familiarize yourself with the platform and its various options. You can test your video camera, microphone and sound here.

Internet Speed

We highly recommend using a reliable internet connection especially during the event. Video and content streaming uses significant bandwidth and we strive to provide the best experience.

Accessing the Sessions

Links for accessing the sessions, including your specific coaching sessions and presentation, will be available on VentureSummit.tv (click on “My Details” and a drop menu will appear) approx. 2-3 days before the Summit. 


Dress Code

Though we are hosting the conference virtually, we still encourage all presenters to look presentable. We therefore suggest business attire.


Reminders

Looking forward to your participation,

The youngStartup Team
