Crossroads Venture Group (CVG) is a voluntary professional association dedicated to supporting investment by providing a network and forum for those involved in creating high-growth enterprises. Members include commercial and investment bankers, service providers, venture capitalists, public investors, and entrepreneurs. Founded in 1974 by some of this countrys pioneer venture capitalists, Crossroads Venture Group is now the model for over 100 organizations around the world. Twenty events are held each year among the three chapters: Stamford, New Haven, and Hartford. Distinguished speakers address a broad range of topics from venture investing and technology developments to entrepreneurial case histories and the economic outlook for new industries. CVG produces the annual Crossroads Venture Fair, an opportunity for venture capitalists to review presentations and exhibits by selected ventures.
