NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 3, 2019--

youngStartup Ventures today announced its largest annual New England Venture Summit (“Summit”) with over 175 presenting companies, from startups to revenue-generating companies, 150 venture capitalists and corporate investors, and 800 attendees. Entering its 14 th year, the Summit, which provides a full day of panel discussions, sessions on the latest funding issues, and networking, takes place December 4, 2019, 8:00 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., at the Hilton Boston/Dedham, Dedham, MA.

“It’s an honor to welcome such high caliber investors and entrepreneurs to our annual Summits, and this year is no exception,” said Joe Benjamin, Founder & CEO of youngStartup Ventures. “I’m passionate about providing entrepreneurs with access to luminaries driving finance, technology, innovation, and leadership, in an effort to help their companies get noticed, and, ultimately, get funded. This event, the largest in the Northeast, attracts leaders and influencers from all over the U.S. with capital to invest.”

Over 175 of the hottest early-stage and growth-stage companies will present in four concurrent tracks covering Technology, Life Sciences & Healthcare, Fintech, and CleanTech, as well as a Seed Pitchfest. Attendees will receive binders containing descriptions of each company, including financials, to aid in selecting which companies to contact and schedule one-on-one meetings with during the Summit using an event app.

A series of panel discussions led by venture capitalists will include Negotiating Term Sheets, Raising Angel Money, Energizing the Flow of Clean-Tech Deals, Banking on Fintech Innovation, and Making VCs Sit Up and Take Notice. Panelists hail from across the U.S., including Boston, New York, Chicago, and the West Coast.

“In 2004, investors asked us to bring our Summit to Boston, after hearing about the success of our New York Venture Summit, which launched in 2000,” said Benjamin. “The New England Venture Summit is the largest venture event in the Northeast and continues to draw investors from all over.”
