Venture135

Venture135 is a premier venture capital conference focusing on generating quality deal flow and innovation across the fintech & insurtech verticals. We use our platform and global reach to bring together the top venture capitalists, angel investors, and growth funds while showcasing companies across the spectrum from Seed to Series B.

Additionally, we take a heightened focus on traditionally underrepresented Founders, specifically at the Seed Stage, in an effort to help startups at this early stage gain access to the resources and momentum they need to propel them to the next phase of their business, and effectively address the significant diversity gap that is so prevalent in later-stage startups.

Talent Jam Charlotte

Connecting talented individuals with the innovative companies that need them through dueling 60 second pitches. 

This unique event connects local tech and creative talent with the startups and innovative companies that need them in ways that traditional networking events or job fairs simply don't.

Instead of traditional job fairs, this high-energy, hyperlocal event features dueling, open-mic pitches where companies that are hiring and people looking for opportunities each deliver alternating 60-second pitches.

Pitches are followed by a casual but impactful networking reception for everyone in attendance.

Talent Jam Charlotte will take place at Heist Barrel Arts on Wednesday, November 16 from 6-9 p.m. Be sure to get the appropriate ticket for pitching either as talent or as a hiring company, or general admission - it will be an amazing opportunity for all attendees to connect and grow their network! 

Registration is required for all attendees and includes an appetizer buffet, thanks to our wonderful sponsors. All tickets include a drink to help you get rid of your pre-pitch jitters. Pitch opportunities are limited.

Free parking is located right next to the building. Additional parking is available on the street. 

This event is brought to you by: Method, Innovate Charlotte, PitchBreakfast and NC Idea
