Investing in the Future of the Auto Industry

The AutoVentures Conference connects automotive's most innovative companies
with investors and progressive dealers
Oct. 25 | Bellagio, Las Vegas

The Hub of Automotive Innovation

DrivingSales and Fraser McCombs Capital are pleased to announce the Second Annual AutoVentures conference – the premier venue for entrepreneurship in the automotive industry.

This year’s event will be even bigger and more dynamic than last year’s successful premier. Based upon the input of last year’s sponsors we have shifted our selection process to feature 20 young companies in automotive at the accelerated growth stage of their revenue trajectory, customers with a tested product in the market seeking capital, partners and clients.

They will all be entrepreneurs with a big dream to share with the most forward-looking investors, dealers and vendors in the industry.

       “AutoVentures saved me months of research and networking to
        find viable investment candidates.
        VP Business Development, a leading automotive software vendor 

“A conference bringing entrepreneurs and investors together is much-needed and long overdue.”
Cliff Banks | Editor, The Banks Report
