If you’re a journalist reporting for a major media outlet or a private blogger with a considerable audience, we’d be happy to have you join as our guest. Please email [email protected] to organize your media pass. Limited speaker interviews will be available by request.
Last year speakers like Raghib Hussain, Shoaib Makani & Ali Jehangir Siddiqui spent plenty of time networking at our opening night, but most speakers are busy founders who are only able to share limited time. All speakers are encouraged to meet attendees, walk the floor, and enjoy the conference — but we make no guarantees. There will, however, be hundreds of investors among the audience — many who’d love to meet you. Our secret to spotting & connecting with VIPs: say hello to those people who seem relaxed and sit back during networking breaks, as many of them will be those whose networks are already incredible. Want to be matched with investors like these? Enter our Pitch Competition or exhibit in Startup Alley.
Aww, we were really looking forward to meeting you! We’re happy to issue a refund, or you can exchange your ticket with a friend or business colleague. Simply email [email protected] with your name and ticket details.
