In their second event of the summer, Velocity Venture Capital is hosting Epic Office Hours on August 29, 2013, at Velocity's Entrepreneurs Campus in Folsom, California. Epic Office Hours provides Sacramento entrepreneurs with a forum where they can meet and present their startup companies to venture capitalists, angel investors, and corporate venture groups. During their conversations, the entrepreneurs can ask the potential investor anything about their business to gain advice on how to improve and develop, and ultimately how to get their next stage of funding. As they meet and advise entrepreneurs, investors get a unique look at the upcoming ideas and investing opportunities that are developing in the Sacramento / Northern California region. Through these conversations of feedback and discovery, Velocity hopes to accelerate the entrepreneurial ecosystem and strengthen the caliber of technology startups in the region.
Epic Office Hours is the second part of Velocity's six month Entrepreneurs Showcase program which will peak this coming December when ten chosen companies will present their ideas to a room of potential investors. In the past, companies that have gone through Velocity's Entrepreneurs Showcase have had great success after being chosen. CJ Alvarado, CEO of Snippet, a startup alumnus of last year's Entrepreneur Showcase, said, "Velocity Venture Capital's Entrepreneurs Showcase program with its business accelerator modules, mentoring, and network of connections and introductions is the best startup resource in the Sacramento / Northern California region. I would encourage any entrepreneur to apply for the program."
