OPENminds showcase & reception


The OPENminds Showcase and Reception features VentureWell E-Teams, early-stage student innovator teams who are focused on launching inventions that will change the world.

During OPENminds 2021, ten E-Teams will demonstrate their ground-breaking innovations and practice their pitches for our audience. You’ll have a chance to visit each team in their breakout room to hear their pitch and ask questions about their invention. Throughout the event, you’ll have the opportunity to “invest” in the teams you like best using OPEN Virtual VentureBucks. Teams receiving the most “investment” from the crowd will win real cash prizes to help bring their innovation to market.

Our 2021 OPENMinds Teams will be announced in late February—come back soon to view their videos and learn more about each team! In the meantime, you can take a peek at the 2020 OPENMinds teams.
