OPEN Minds Reception

Saturday, March 24, 6:30 pm 

Cap off the conference with the must-attend OPEN Minds showcase and reception. Our top student E-Teams will demonstrate their ground-breaking innovations and practice their pitches to faculty, VentureWell’s extended staff and funders. Attendees will receive $1 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.

This year’s OPEN Minds event will take place at the Bullock Texas State History Museum, located at 1800 Congress Ave. in Austin.

Meet the 2017 OPEN Minds teams here.
