“NEXT Venture Summit” scheduled for mid-September in Greenville, SC

The event has been expanded to two days with an invitation-only day for high-potential start-ups and investors added.

If one day is good, why not two days?

That might be the thinking behind recently announced plans for the “NEXT Venture Summit” in Greenville, SC. The eighth annual edition is scheduled for September 12 and 13 at the Greenville One Center.

NEXT is a non-profit entrepreneurial support organization, led by President Eric Weissmann, that attracts and helps grow high-impact, knowledge-based companies by developing the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Greenville and connecting entrepreneurs to it. Its mission is to identify, engage and provide support for high-growth entrepreneurs and their teams as they build scaling, investor-ready companies through programming, connections, and support whether just starting out or well on their way.

The “”NEXT Venture Summit” is designed for growth-stage entrepreneurs who are seeking to accelerate their momentum and connect with the Greenville entrepreneurial ecosystem. It is also valuable for venture capitalists, investors, and anyone interested in the Upstate regional start-up ecosystem.

For the first year ever, the Summit will host a private, invitation-only “Investor Match Day” for high-potential start-ups to network and meet with top investors and investment firms around the country. That event will occur the afternoon of September 12 ahead of the welcoming reception. The programming runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on September 13.
