In recent years, the Mid-Atlantic region has emerged as the birthplace of some of the hottest ideas, game-changing innovations and cutting-edge technologies in the United States.
TechBUZZ was launched in May 2011 as a half-day conference preceding Capital Connection. This high-energy, fast-paced Seed Stage format was developed in response to the increasing strength of the start-up and seed-stage companiy formation within the investment ecosystem. MAVA is dedicated to celebrating this vital area of our membership by bringing together investors and entrepreneurs in a dynamic and meaningful format. In 2013, MAVA will host three TechBUZZ events to shine the spotlight on the best & brightest startups throughout the year: April, June and September
TechBUZZ shines a well-deserved light on visionary innovators and company-builders in our region who actively develop their concepts, test beta products and services and pursue a path toward market entry. Past presenting companies, including TroopID, Cont3nt.com and Speek, have significantly raised their profiles in the startup community since presenting on the TechBUZZ stage, a truly indispensable reward.
To celebrate the "next big thing" discovered during TechBUZZ, our "Best of the BUZZ" finalists from TechBUZZ will be invited to present in front of the Capital Connection audience on June 5-6th in the TechBUZZ Showdown. Our audience will be polled in real time, via mobile devices, to vote for their favorite. The Top TechBUZZ presenter will be recognized at the Capital Connection closing reception.
This is a tremendous opportunity for visibility as we crown the victor at the culmination of Capital Connection'13. Don't miss the BUZZ!
