On Wednesday, February 14, The ARCHAngels Network—A group that meets quarterly for selected startups to present and connect for much needed resources—will join forces with the Northeast Ohio Student Venture Fund (NEOSVF)— a group of six regional universities where students review, analyze, and select companies for funding—for a unique collaborative pitch event.
The event, which will be held from 3-5pm at the Quaker Station on the University of Akron’s campus, has already attracted more than 100 signups. Attendees will include students from a number of regional universities, individuals from Northeast Ohio entrepreneurial support organizations, accountants, lawyers, economic developers, innovation specialists, and many more.

At the event, five pre-selected companies will pitch to student managers from NEOSVF chapters and respond to initial questions with the hope of being funded. Following the presentations, there will be networking and refreshments.
After the event, NEOSVF student managers will continue working through questions with the startups until mid-April, when the student managers prepare and deliver funding recommendations to the NEOSVF Board of Directors.
