Early-stage startup? You’re in the right place


Last year we consolidated a decade's worth of startup competitions and learnings into Boost – a program dedicated to accelerating the growth of early-stage companies. Since our first edition, we’ve seen participants secure excellent media coverage, influential new customers and millions of dollars in funding.

This year, we’ve slashed the cost of participating in half. Selected startups only pay $849 for an exhibitor stand, 3 tickets, the chance to pitch on stage and many more perks. Our new price is so low that it's officially the most affordable way to attend the conference – so what’re you waiting for?
