Calling all companies! Apply for three chances to pitch at the 2020 Early Stage Symposium

Calling all companies! Apply for three chances to pitch at the 2020 Early Stage Symposium

Applications are being accepted now from young companies that want to tell their stories to investors at our annual Wisconsin Early Stage Symposium #ESSWI, to be held Nov. 9-11 on a virtual platform.

The 2020 format includes two pitch opportunities – the Tech Council Investor Networks track (five-minute presentations) and the popular Elevator Pitch Olympics – as well as “Investor Intros,” which will allow pre-selected companies brief, one-on-one meetings with targeted angel and venture investors.

As a special offer to all applicants, we have partnered with AirDeck to build your presentation deck. AirDeck creates online narrated presentations for sales pitches, online courses and webinars. Its unique features include the ability to quickly customize presentations while adding voice or video narration. We encourage narration of your decks and sharing it with attendees during the conference. AirDeck presentations will be required for TCIN presentations and optional for other applicants. You may also include it as part of your executive summary; as a bonus, you’ll have an extended free trial through the conference.

Instructions for how to apply for all or a mix of the investor presentation opportunities can be found at on the “ESS applications” tab.

At least one applicant must register in advance for the conference at a discounted rate of $49. Additional team members may register at the same rate. Companies selected for the Tech Council Investor Networks track presentations will also receive a complimentary individual membership to the Tech Council’s Innovation Network for one year (a $120 value).

The deadline to apply online is 5 p.m. Friday, Sept. 25.
