This year at Where 2.0, we’re hosting Startup Showcase. Highlighting the startup ecosystem’s creativity and variety, the Showcase gives you a chance to get in front of hundreds of potential users and a couple of high-profile investors. On Wednesday night, April 20th, we’ll have 20 startups demoing in one large room. We’ll provide you with a small table and two passes to get into the show: you’ll bring a laptop (or two) and a founder (or two).

Attendees will have 60 minutes to see your demos. As they walk around, attendees will vote on their favorite demos. At the end of the hour, our guest judges (TBD) will announce their top three picks and the audience favorite. These three startups will each give a one-minute pitch to the audience and will have a short time onstage to get feedback.

How do you qualify? We’re looking for:

  • Relatively young startups that aren’t drowning in investment (yet)
  • Companies in all technology areas: hardware, software, B2B, B2C, mobile (just to name the most obvious categories)

If selected:

  • You’ll supply your own laptop for the demos
  • You’ll bring a maximum of two people (at least one of whom must be a founder or C-level equivalent)
  • The week prior to the event, you’ll supply us with a presentation of 2-4 slides that includes screenshots for your onstage pitch in case you are selected by the judges.

If you’re among the three winners, you’ll give a one-minute pitch onstage and get direct feedback from the judges.
