Venturefest Oxford is an annual event that brings together innovators, investors and entrepreneurs from across the region to make connections that lead to new investments, new businesses and new ideas in the high-tech sector. The Oxford Trust helped to set up the original Venturefest Oxford in 1999 as part of its objective to build networks within the local innovation ecosystem.
The event celebrates successes in the knowledge economy in the region and this model was used to set up the National Venturefest network.
Since 2014, Venturefest Oxford has expanded to provide a year-round platform of events and opportunities to connect, including bi-annual Pitchfest events. The Oxford Trust still plays an active role in Venturefest – supporting the management team, providing workshops and talks at the annual event and using The Oxford Trust Enterprise Awards as a launch pad for promotion of the event’s programme each year.
