open minds showcase and reception

The OPEN Minds Showcase and Reception is an exciting highlight each year at OPEN. Our top student E-Teams will demonstrate their ground-breaking innovations and practice their pitches to faculty, VentureWell staff, and funders. Attendees will receive $3 million in Venture Bucks to “invest” in the team (or teams) they like best. At the end of the night, the team receiving the most Venture Bucks will win a $3,000 prize. The second- and third-place teams will win $2,000 and $1,000, respectively.
