About

Venture135 is a premier venture capital conference focusing on generating quality deal flow and innovation across the fintech, insurtech, healthtech & cleantech verticals. We use our platform and global reach to bring together the top venture capitalists, angel investors, and growth funds while showcasing companies across the spectrum from Seed to Series B.

 

Additionally, we take a heightened focus on traditionally underrepresented Founders, specifically at the Seed Stage, in an effort to help startups at this early stage gain access to the resources and momentum they need to propel them to the next phase of their business, and effectively address the significant diversity gap that is so prevalent in later-stage startups.

Organizing Body

RevTech Labs is the aggregator of innovation, standing at the center of entrepreneurs, corporations and investors to maximize Founder success, drive corporate innovation and facilitate valuable deal flow. Headquartered in Charlotte, they bring partners and startups from around the world together to create the ultimate roadmap for growth and success. Since its founding in 2012, RevTech Labs has grown from a general tech accelerator focused on developing the Charlotte ecosystem to an international, award-nominated organization focused specifically in the fintech, insurtech and healthtech verticals, and have expanded into programs for later-stage startups as well as a world-class event production company.
