Connecticut’s global venture challenge is returning to Israel this November

VentureClash is Connecticut’s global venture challenge for early-stage companies. We are looking for companies across many industries looking to establish a US headquarters in Connecticut. While we are accepting applications from all industries, we tend to invest in the categories in which we have the most to offer. Those industries include healthcare, technology, consumer and greentech. The one-day event will feature brief presentations from company finalists, who will pitch in front of a panel of guest judges.
