The Agenda is Almost too Much for a high IQ to Digest

But still, we’ll venture into making our own top-2 of must-attend sessions: 

How to Scale Your Startup Globally Global expansion is critical to building the next unicorn, but what’s the right approach to maximize growth with limited resources? 
What does it take to raise a Series A  Venture capital funds have boomed this decade, but raising money is still hard for young companies. What are investors today looking for in teams, metrics and products?

Startup Alley

The one thing we’ve learned about big Tech events is that the exhibiting startups are like open books for you. And it doesn’t matter if you’re an investor or an entrepreneur with an idea similar to the exhibitors — everybody will have an opportunity to find some valuable take-aways from chatting to the startup reps at the exhibition floor. 

We agree with TechCrunch, it’s networking on steroids where you have the opportunity to meet: 

  • investors determined to find the perfect addition to their portfolios, 
  • journalists eager to write about new companies and emerging trends or 
  • startuppers looking for collaborators, service providers or a new gig.

Here’s the best part: you still have time to plant your flag in Startup Alley and place your innovative products and ideas in front of the movers and shakers who can help you advance your business goals. How? Buy a Startup Alley Exhibitor Package. As always, you can count on our goodwill and readiness to help you get the best deal for you for you — remember, if you’re exhibiting at a TECHCRUNCH event (event at the last minute), you’re sending a loud message to the markets! Contact us for more details or directly the organizers’ team.
