Investors Choice Capital Conference
What is the Investors Choice® Venture Capital Conference?
The Investors Choice® Conference is the longest running venture capital conference in the country. At this unique “Pitch” event, up to 30 startups will present their business opportunities to local, regional, and national investors. Leading up to the Investors Choice® Conference, each startup will have been mentored on 1) how to effectively deliver their investor presentation, and 2) developing strategies to commercialize and scale for 6-12 weeks leading up to the pitch event. Additionally, each company will have an opportunity to present to a panel of active angel and venture investors 3-4 weeks leading up to Investors Choice®.

The Conference is held every February and is a 2 day event. We kick things off with a ski day and race at a local ski and snowboard resort. It is a fun way to get to know our network in a non-business environment, all ski/snowboard levels are welcome. We follow ski day with a reception to introduce presenting companies and discuss the following days agenda. The next stay starts with investor presentations to be followed by lunch. Lunch includes a keynote speaker and remarks from our CEO about what VentureCapital.Org has planned for the following year.
The Conference is the premier event to meet and collaborate with the biggest group of investors in the Intermountain region. Since 2009, alumni have raised over $1.6 billion in capital, realized $10.8 billion in exit transactions, and 80% are still in business. It is important to note that Investors Choice is about making connections. Historically, 70% of companies raise capital within 12 months after participating in Investors Choice.
There is not a fee to apply, startups that are selected to present are required to pay a $500 fee to cover program expenses and asked to voluntarily participate in our Pay It Forward Program. Those startups are provided 1 ticket to all the conference events and heavily discounted additional registrations. Applications are due 11/1/2020.
