Submissions and voting close May 12th at 5:00 PM EDT.
In this round, we’re giving new innovators the opportunity to submit their concepts for a crowdsourced round of voting. Past participating companies have seen their businesses accelerate due to their involvements in the Insight Innovation Competition, resulting in funding, partnerships, new clients, and global brand exposure.
The Insight Innovation Competition collaborates with many corporate venture groups, strategic investors, angels, private equity groups, funds and incubators who view the Competition as a vital source of prospective deal flow. Our track record of producing winning companies that have gone on to rapid growth has made the IIeX vent series a destination for representatives from many potential funding partners, and being on stage during the Competition gives participants and unrivalled opportunity to expose them to your business and make connections afterward.
In addition, our Corporate Partners include the leaders around the world in many sectors who also depend on IieX and the Competition as the funnel for finding and engaging with new innovative partners. Competition entrants are in a showcase position to get their attention and earn an opportunity to present to them on how they can make a difference in their organizations.
