Tech.Co Startup of the Year Competition Heads to Las Vegas

June 19, 2015

3:00 pm

The Tech.Co regional startup competitions are going full force across the country! Check out the highlights of the winners, announcements, and polls here. In October, all of the regional Startup of the Year winners will be invited to compete in Las Vegas during Celebrate 2015. And in July, the Las Vegas startup community will vote on the best and brightest early-stage startups at the Las Vegas Startup of the Year Competition & Mixer on July 23 from 6:30 – 9:00 PM at the Gold Spike in Downtown Las Vegas.

The Las Vegas startup scene has benefited in the last few years from a generous inculcation of funding and ecosystem support from the Downtown Project, a $350M fund aimed at making Downtown Las Vegas “a place of Inspiration, Entrepreneurial Energy, Creativity, Innovation, Upward Mobility, and Discovery”. This has boosted tech startups in the area who are able to benefit from increased awareness, cohesive community, and coworking & meeting infrastructure provided by programs such as VegasTechFund and The Mill. These programs are just one facet of the opportunity that abounds for startups in Las Vegas. Join us at our July event to mingle with all of the people and companies in the Las Vegas Valley who are supporting each other every step of the way on the entrepreneurial journey.

Las Vegas Startups: Apply to Pitch

Are you a startup looking to be part of the action?  The winning startup of the night will also win an opportunity to join us at this year’s Tech.Co Celebrate Conference in Downtown Las Vegas from October 4 to October 6.

Win Big at Tech.Co Celebrate Conference 2015

At this year’s Tech.Co Celebrate Conference, winners of our regional competitions will get the opportunity to pitch their ideas at our global pitch competition and win the coveted title of Tech.Co Startup of the Year.

But there’s a lot more to win than just the title. All competitors at the global Startup of the Year competition will get the opportunity to be accepted into a top, U.S.-based accelerator. Techstars, one of the top U.S.-based accelerators, has reserved a guaranteed “fast track” in the Techstars application process, including an interview with one of their Managing Directors. CEA offers a prize package of exhibit space and ten free passes to the 2016 International CES show along with travel and accommodations in Las Vegas, Nevada for the show. They are looking for the best ‘consumer electronics’ startup to award this prize. More prizes to be announced.

Apply Now and Make Your Way to Celebrate 2015

There are two ways a startup can qualify for the Tech.Co Celebrate 2015 global competition via our events:

  1. Reader’s Choice Poll: Tech.Co readers will have a chance to vote for their favorite regional startup, determined by an online poll. The poll will be live until 5PM EST the day of the event.
  2. Pitch Competition: Startups showcasing at the mixer and startup showcase will get to pitch for 60 seconds. Then, Tech Cocktail attendees will have a chance to vote for their favorite regional startups after all the 60-second pitches are complete.

Las Vegas, you’ve got to get in on this event. Whether it’s to mix and mingle with other influencers and makers in the community, or to show off what your startup is doing, this is the place you want to be. Join sponsors VegasTechFund and ROCeteer in celebrating the Las Vegas Startup of the Year!
