TechBUZZ - A Showcase for Seed Stage Startups

 

TechBUZZ is where the cool new concepts make their debut, on a big stage (often for the first time).  TechBUZZ is designed to shine the light on those earliest stage firms who are reinventing the world we live in, but who are still building their tools and technologies. 

Most TechBUZZ firms have not yet raised their first round of funding, beyond their treasured friends, families and fools.  TechBUZZ firms are often at the beta testing stage or ready to share a prototype, but are almost entirely pre-revenue. 

The TechBUZZ format is snappy, fast-paced and ruthless.   Firms have 4 minutes to sell their story in front of an audience of investors and their peers.   The format is “dueling banjos” with simultaneous presentations, and the pace is fast.  The buzzer is loud for those who run on long, but the prize is terrific for those who succeed.

This year for the first time, the “Best of the BUZZ” will be invited back to take the stage at the end of the Capital Connection.  There, in front of an audience of 800+ investors, advisors and technology firms of all sizes, sectors and stages, the top TechBUZZ presenters will do their pitch on the big stage – and, by popular vote, the TechBUZZ Champion will be crowned for all to celebrate.

Sound like your kind of thing?  Check out the details and join us!

CC'13 - for Early, Expansion & Growth Stage Firrms

 

Capital Connection sets the standard as the premier forum for Early, Expansion and Growth Companies to present their business models and their potential for accelerated growth to a broad audience of investors, advisors and peers across all stages and sectors.

Companies apply through a highly selective application process, and are scrubbed for the soundness of their financial model as well as the innovation and potential of their ideas.  Once selected, the Capital Connection Companies reap the benefits of substantial support through individual coaching, a pre conference Fast Track Webinar, special invitations to pre-conference networking events with investors and a complete marketing launch package to help the firm fully leverage their moment in the sun on the big stage. 

Throughout the years, a veritable “who’s who” of our region’s top technology talent have presented at Capital Connection.  This stage is known for introducing the “next big thing” to the investors who focus on growth, and each year we find new “stars” to brighten the universe of Capital Connection Alumni.

Is this your year to shine?  If the timing is right, the venue cannot be beat.
