Want to be a part of the Funding Founders Community?

All qualified investors and startups will be able to participate in the program at no additional cost! You will have the option to sign up during the registration process for ViVE.

After opting into the program, you will need to answer a few more questions to create your matchmaking profile in the Funding Founders digital platform.

Please note: Investors drive the meeting process by initiating meeting requests within the platform. We can not guarantee meetings for startups as all requests are driven by investors. Schedules for any confirmed meetings will be shared a week prior to the event. Only one person per startup company may opt into the program.
