Startup Showcase will be returning to Strata this fall, giving groundbreaking startups a chance to show their stuff to the world. Here’s how to get involved.
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.
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.
Union Square Ventures
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 October 23; then judges Tim O’Reilly and Fred Wilson will choose the best of the best live at Strata. Here’s what you need to know:
