Visit Locally | Learn Globally | Connect Safely

Since Venture Café is a place of convergence – bringing together people from all over the city and the world – we are taking extra precautions to limit potential exposure and spread of the novel COVID-19 virus (“coronavirus”) to our community. We ask for your understanding and cooperation.

In light of the current COVID-19 situation, we find that the responsible course of action is to cancel in-person Thursday Gatherings. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Moving forward
We have been preparing for this situation and we will continue to create an amazing event experience. For now, we will bring our Thursday Gathering online in a digital version. You can visit the Venture Café in the digital world for the foreseeable future!

FAQ about a Virtual Thursday Gathering

The digital Thursday Gathering will still include regular favorites such as Venture Café Networking Space, Professional Development Sessions, Community Development Sessions, and Pitches.

Thank you for your support and remember that you – the Venture Cafe Community – are at the heart of everything we do. And – we don’t stop counting, you can still get your number of visits up in the digital café!

Log-in will be available Thursday @ 12:00 am so you can attend sessions from around the world.

Lessons Learned Launching a Brand

5:00 PM – 5:50 PM | Click here to Sign in

Creating a new brand is exciting while also daunting. Companies will endure adversity along the way with success resulting from overcoming challenges and gaining insight. Farm to Feet socks in Mount Airy overcame odds and realized success in the face of profoundly entrenched competition. During my tenure as VP of Marketing between 2013 and 2018, I gained insight into what is required to be successful. These lessons from Farm to Feet can be illustrative for other companies wanting to start a brand.
