Startup Showcase

A new initiative taking the Startupfest Pitch Stage

The Startup Showcase is where the art of the pitch takes center stage - literally. With the help of our partners, hand-selected entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to showcase their startup to a captivated audience. Whether you're an aspiring founder seeking inspiration or an investor scouting for the next big thing, the Startup Showcase promises to be an exciting addition to the Startupfest lineup.

The Startup Showcase will be run as a series of 4 separate showcases, each with a unique vertical or focus. Learn more about the showcases below.
