2015 Conference Schedule
This is a sample of the 2015 Schedule. With a new venue this year, we will certainly be adding in time to visit with the interactive exhibits found at the College Football Hall of Fame. We will post our 2016 schedule in early September.
For planning purposes, investors should fly in late afternoon on Tuesday, November 1 to attend our Venture Atlanta Alumni Dinner and plan to fly out late afternoon on Thursday, November 3rd.
