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 in 2014. It’s your chance to hone your pitch, meet investors, and bounce your big idea off the industry’s movers and shakers.

Our team of investors, entrepreneurs, and industry analysts will select ten leading big data startups from all the submissions we receive. These ten firms will have a chance to present their technologies and tell their stories live at the Startup Showcase on Tuesday, February 11; then our judges will choose the best of the best, which we’ll announce from the stage on February 12.
