This year the LAUNCH Festival will name the top 10 startups across the 22 most important categories in technology, giving each startup a free table.
TechCrunch, DEMO, WebSummit and other predatory conferences charge $10-20,000 for these tables. These packages cost us three thousand dollars each, but thanks to the support of our partners, we can offer them free, based on merit.
Our goal is help founders land investment, hire talent, get press and find customers -- not make money from them!
DEMO PIT companies also receive five founder tickets to the event.
The DEMO PIT will be open each day from 8-10AM, 12-2PM and 5:30-7PM on Wednesday and Thursday, giving founders over 15 hours to meet with customers, investors and the press at their tables -- without missing any of the action on our three stages.
You can nominate yourself, or any seed-stage startup for a DEMO PIT table. We define a startup as having under $2m in funding and being under three years old.
If your startup has raised over $2m in funding, but would still like to have a table in our demo pit, you can purchase a demo table. A demo table includes:
2 Festival Plus Passes that give you access to both the Opening Night and Founders Dinner
