Whether you are looking for funding, contracts or just want to expose your technology and innovation to the audience to get feedback and make connections, each selected venture will have a 4-minute “elevator ride” to share their compelling story. Life after the 2019 IOC: videos of the pitches will be hosted on our You Tube channel so we can all drive traffic and get you seen and heard.

Up to six companies will be chosen to participate in the Elevator Accelerator session, which will be held during the IOC on Thursday, November 14 from 2:15-3 pm. 

Each company will have four minutes to present and will be allowed a maximum of four slides. Each pitch will be followed by three minutes of Q&A from the audience. You will be required to upload a video of your pitch at the end of this application.

Applications for the Elevator Accelerator are due October 18. Accepted ventures will be notified by November 1. All application information (including the video) will be kept confidential.

The application period is now closed.
