The OPENminds Showcase & Reception is a highlight of the conference each year.
This celebratory event features VentureWell E-Teams, early-stage student innovator teams who are developing inventions that aim to provide solutions to large-scale social challenges.
During the showcase, the OPENminds teams will have the opportunity to demonstrate their groundbreaking innovations and practice their pitches with the OPEN community.
You can visit each team, learn more about their invention, and ask questions about the path to commercialization for each product. Once you’ve visited each team, invest up to $3M in VentureBucks in the projects you find most promising.
We award cash prizes to the top three investment-getters. We also award the Sustainability Prize to the team whose invention demonstrates the most potential for positive environmental impact.
