In early 2000s, Ben Franklin Technology Partners of NE PA introduced a program to help its clients get in front of venture capitalists. This provided two very special and important opportunities. First, it helped to guide and prepare start- up ventures in their ability to present their business and investment case. Second, it helped to make venture capitalists aware of the business innovations taking place in the Lehigh Valley. In tonight’s program we learn about this program called Venture Idol by talking with Wayne Barz, Manager of Entrepreneurial Services at Ben Franklin and Bill Crompton, the 2011 Venture Idol recipient.
