Why Venture Café?

Your Relationships are More Important than Your Idea.

You may have a great business idea but without relationships, your chances of launching a successful business in isolation are low. Venture Café exists to help you connect, learn, knowledge-share, and launch a successful business. We are an inclusive community of entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs, funders and corporate innovators connecting each Thursday at One Broadway in Cambridge, MA.
