If you’re a trailblazing startup founder, a savvy VC, or an industry luminary, we want to hear from you. Share your expertise with fellow founders, innovators, and entrepreneurs across the startup landscape.

In your application, pitch us your topic with a catchy title and a compelling description. Then choose your preferred presentation format:

Deliver a 30-minute presentation followed by a 20-minute Q&A session with a live audience of up to 100 attendees.
