Showcase Event to Spotlight 15 Market-Making Technology Businesses
Capital Connection 2013
Today, MAVA announced the fifteen companies selected to take the Main Stage of this year’s Capital Connection 2013 conference. Each year, Capital Connection brings together leading investors and top performing technology executives for an intense series of company presentations showcasing technology companies at all stages of development, along with high-level CEO addresses, thought-leading keynotes, and networking sessions.
Capital Connection 2013 will shine a spotlight on a number of dynamically changing industries – including education technology, mobility and the intersection of Big Data with health IT - emphasizing a broad array of industry sectors that are growing exponentially throughout the global market and where the Mid-Atlantic tech community brings particular strength and unique expertise. This year’s conference takes place June 5-6 at the Mead Center for American Theater, home to Arena Stage, in Washington, DC.
The newly announced Main Stage companies are quite diverse, with many having already established themselves as market leaders, on a phenomenal growth trajectory. Others are now poised for an inflection point in their growth, either through a major breakthrough in their market position or by raising new capital. All represent leading indicators of technology trends in key sectors. These companies will share their stories at one of the industry’s most respected gatherings of technology companies and on the largest tech/invest platform of its kind on the East Coast, with an eye toward national and international reach for their message and their products.
“These Main Stage presenters are at the heart of Capital Connection and represent leaders in their individual fields, often sought out by policy makers and thought leaders for their insight into the tech market. They are bringing innovative products to the commercial market, and for many, are well on their way to being dominant industry leaders. Those seeking financing represent attractive investment opportunities across sectors. When I look at these companies collectively, I am struck by the wealth of ground-breaking technology and business acumen fueling this strong technology sector,” said Julia Spicer, Executive Director of MAVA.
