“The VC conference at Big Sky helped me a lot in the fact that I could learn what it takes to get funding at any level. Having been an engineer most of my career I have not been exposed to funding at any level and the conference gave me the foot-hold to begin understanding the financial side of the equation. I made a lot of good contacts and through them I have been able to redefine my market to a point where I can now comfortably give my elevator pitch with confidence and understand my market size and definition.” Steve Titus, CEO- Free Drive EV, Inc.

Invited companies will be given 20 minutes to pitch their model and 2 days to network and interact with investors who can provide much more than just money to foster the success of a company.
