Each forum will consist of two main components - entrepreneur engagement and an investor-facing Pitchfest

Entrepreneur Engagement
Village Capital will host several events for participating ventures, including a roundtable discussion on the key issues in financial technology today, a sneak peek of Village Capital's award-winning curriculum, and 1:1 time with industry-leading mentors.

Pitchfest
Village Capital will host a pitchfest and happy hour for participating ventures and the local investor community. The audience and the participating ventures will then each vote on the top two ventures, and each selection will receive $1,000 in grant prize money.


Entrepreneurs are encouraged to apply to the full program, available at www.f6s.com/vilcapusfintech.

Full program applications are due no later than March 27th, 2015.

Travel stipends are available for those traveling from outside of the Forum regions.
