A new generation of businesses is betting that data-driven products can give them the edge. From efficient marketplaces to frictionless transactions, from better customer interaction to prescient predictions, from platforms that can mine vast troves of data instantly to catalogs of information available for sale, the startup ecosystem loves Big Data.

Startup Showcase

Startups that put data first aren’t just able to adjust faster and find their product and market better. They’re also reconsidering aging industries and ailing infrastructure, upending incumbents and breaking down barriers to entry.

Startup Showcase returns to Strata + Hadoop World in 2015. It’s a chance for founders to hone their pitch, meet investors, and bounce big idea off the industry’s movers and shakers.

Our team of investors, entrepreneurs, and industry analysts will select 12 leading big data startups from all the submissions we receive. These 12 firms will have a chance to present their technologies and tell their stories live at the Startup Showcase.
