The 2013 StartupConnect AZ Conference, presented by the Arizona Technology Council, IDS Technology Marketing and the Arizona Commerce Authority, will CONNECT and SHOWCASE our state’s growing startup community with an unprecedented lineup of experts from education, public policy, business, technology, economic development, incubation and co-working, investing and venture capital, and entrepreneurship.
StartupConnect AZ will also feature breakout sessions on four key startup verticals showing growth in Arizona:
- Education Technology and STEM
- Health Technology
- Clean and Green Technology
- eCommerce and SaaS
Arizona startups from each of our four verticals will have the opportunity to pitch in front of our audience and judges. Four finalists, one from each vertical, will receive one year of free Cloud hosting, courtesy of OnTop Technology. The grand-prize winner will receive a cash fund comprised from ALL ticket sales from the event. The more tickets we sell, the larger the prize!
