Face to Face

The Face to Face event is an opportunity for entrepreneurs, companies, and investors to come together to share their insight. Presenting companies have the opportunity to share a little bit about themselves, something that they’ve learned on their journey, and a chance to ask investors questions.

Companies are able to reserve seats for a demo table, and all attendees can participate in the round table breakout sessions where they can speak to investors and ask questions.
