Invest Southwest’s primary focus is the health and safety of our attendees and partners. We are excited to announce we will be moving forward with the event this year on October 6-7, 2021 in Phoenix, AZ. We are closely monitoring conditions, including following the recommendations from the CDC and the State of Arizona Governor’s office and health agencies. We will err on the side of caution and if we do need to reschedule, all attendees will be notified of the new date immediately.
Masks and sanitizer will be available onsite for all attendees.
The competition starts with selected presenting companies grouped into distinct categories based on industry focus. The companies are chosen by an expert selection panel, then the finalist companies advance to the live-demo portion of the contest held October 6-7, 2021 at the Phoenix Biomedical Campus downtown.
Leading up to the event, finalist companies will get expert mentorship from seasoned investors, business leaders and other successful entrepreneurs in preparation for the competition. At the live event, they’ll compete in head-to-head pitches in each category for a chance to win cash, and most importantly, get exposure for their company while building an invaluable network of the Southwest’s most active investors who attend Venture Madness specifically to grow their investment portfolios with the next heroes!
Please Note: If your company is selected to present at our 2021 event, the CEO will be required to attend our Presenting Company Orientation and Mentor Sessions held in August and September, just prior to the October event.
