The Philadelphia Alliance for Capital and Technologies (PACT)’s vision is to be the go-to resource for fast growing companies and a driver of entrepreneurship and innovation in the Philadelphia region.
Each year, the organization hosts Phorum, a concentrated, full-day dose of technology-focused panels, networking, and startup pitches. Attendees will benefit from both expert perspectives on accelerating technical developments and peer discussions on their transformative impact on existing industries and business models. PACT is seeking startups to demo their products at the event.
Startups can apply to demo as part of the Phorum Demo Pit.
This popular competition allows conference attendees to experience, first-hand, some of the most innovative technologies under development in the Philadelphia region and watch them vie for “Best in Show”. Early stage companies, with a product in early commercialization, are encouraged to apply.
Each company selected will receive a booth to demo their product throughout the entire conference and five minutes to present on the Demo Pit stage. An esteemed panel of investor judges will pick three companies as Demo Pit Finalists, and ultimately, one will be named the "Best in Show" Winner on the Main Stage during the Closing Session.
PACT is looking for startup companies whose technology is addressing at least one of the following areas: Mobile, blockchain, IoT, big data and analytics, machine learning/AI, privacy and security.
