Venture For America is creating the next generation of entrepreneurs. To date, our Fellows have started more than 140 companies, which have gone on to raise more than $63 million in investment funding.
Please join us on December 5th as we toast to another incredible year at VFA, the inspiring journeys of our Fellow Founded companies, & the conclusion of our signature Accelerator. We're celebrating at New York's Metrograph theater where you'll watch some of our Fellow Founders pitch a panel of sharks & you, the audience, as they compete for up to $10,000 in prizes for their young companies. We'll finish the night with a cocktail reception to celebrate their hard work.
About the VFA Accelerator
November marks the conclusion of our fifth annual Accelerator. Based in Cleveland for the first time ever, the Accelerator allowed six Fellow Founded Company teams to spend four months hustling hard to build their businesses. From providing space to live & work, to connecting with mentors & advisors, to building skills like ad testing & financial modeling, the Accelerator is all about guiding new founders down their own path to success. Some of the companies pitching will be fresh from their time in the Accelerator - & we're excited for you to see all they have accomplished!
VFA Demo Day is a fundraising opportunity designed to be accessible to all VFA supporters & community members. Your support allows us to continue to mobilize the next generation of entrepreneurs & job creators.
Grab a cocktail & a bite, mingle, & prepare to be wowed by our Fellow founders.
VFA Fellow founders will give their best 3 minute pitches followed by questions from our panel of judges. After you've heard from all teams, you'll have a chance to text-to-vote to award a cash prize.
Eat, drink, & celebrate with VFA Fellows, Team, & supporters.
