Startup Pitch Competition ( Hall 3 Expo Hall)
We are very proud to announce that this year’s ARVR Innovate will include a special ‘Startup Zone’. This is a new feature for our conference and will involve an entire section of our Exhibition Area devoted to startup businesses.
A wide range of different startup businesses from across the AR and VR will have stand spaces in this section, where they will be able to showcase their work and hopefully to connect with new audiences and potentially make further connections that will aide their business.
The startups in this area will come from far and wide. We are expecting to see businesses from the USA, Russia, Europe, UK and of course Ireland featured in this year’s ‘Startup Zone’.
In addition, the ‘Startup Zone’ will also include another special feature. Uo to 10 of the startup businesses will also be invited to make short presentations about their business on the ‘stARtup Stage’. These presentations will allow the businesses to talk about the products they offer, who they are aimed at, how they are delivered, the technology that is used and to provide some background about the people behind them. The presentations will be delivered during the various intervals in the main conference activity – helping to bring greater focuses to these startups.
All of the presentations will also be assessed by special ARVR Innovate judges Barry Downes ,Suir Valley Ventures, Dermot Casey, NDRC and Dr James Crawford, SAP, who will award the ARVR Innovate Startup Award 2018 at the end of the overall conference.
