Applications Open: 2017 Forward Festival Startup Showcase



The Forward Festival Startup Showcase features an evening of startup pitches from some of Madison’s most compelling emerging companies. Approximately five startups will be selected to give a 5- minute “demo day” style pitch. In addition, several Startup Showcase alumni from past years will take part in a lightning round of 1-minute update pitches. The Startup Showcase is a high energy stage that celebrates and showcases what’s next in Madison’s startup ecosystem and is open to early and later stage companies, venture and non-venture backed companies, as well as for-profit and non-profit companies.

Apply to give a 5 minute “demo day” style pitch in front of hundreds of people at this year’s Startup Showcase! The event will be the evening of August 22 as part of the Forward Summit, and the application deadline is July 11.

(Note: If you’ve pitched at Startup Showcase previously, you will be contacted separately to give a 1 minute alumni update pitch – no need to apply).
