Strata Startup Showcase

Call closed 11:59pm 01/21/2011 PST.

At the inaugural edition of Strata, we’re hosting our first ever Startup Showcase. Highlighting the startup ecosystem’s creativity and variety, the Showcase will give you a chance to get your company in front of a global community of leaders in the technology industry-—as well as potential investors.

On Tuesday evening, February 1, we’ll have approximately 15 data related startups demoing in one large room. If your company is chosen to participate, we’ll provide you with a small table and room for two people to demo—-you’ll bring a laptop (or two) and a founder (or two).

Strata attendees and a panel of judges from the investor community will have an hour to visit the demos and listen to your pitches-—we’ll sound a chime every five minutes or so, letting people know it’s time to circulate. As they walk around, attendees will vote on their favorite demos. At the end of the hour, the judges will announce their top picks along with the audience favorite. These winning startups will then each give a pitch and have an on-stage conversation with the judges.

The Judges

  • Tim Guileri (Sierra Ventures)
  • Alistair Croll (Strata Co-Chair, Bitcurrent)
