Venturefest Oxford was set up in 1998 as an annual event that brings together innovators, investors and entrepreneurs to make connections that lead to new investments, new businesses and new ideas in the high-tech sector.
The event celebrates successes in the knowledge economy in the region and provides a focal point for the local innovation eco system. This model was used to set up the National Venturefest network.
Since 2014, Venturefest Oxford has expanded to provide a year-round platform of events and opportunities to connect, including bi-annual Pitchfest events.
To provide a platform to support the innovation eco system in Oxfordshire, offering new and growing businesses and innovators connections to investors, support services and networking opportunities.
To grow the Venturefest Oxford brand to attract a wide range of entrepreneurs and innovators and offer them the support they need at every stage of their business journey.
