Emerging Technology Business Showcase (ETBS)
One of EDC's two annual conferences, ETBS is South Florida's premier pitch event for emerging science and technology startups. Members of the entrepreneurial, tech, and angel community convene for one day to preview 15 of the most promising young companies in our region, and participate in meaningful networking opportunities throughout the day.
The conference is held each November and combines keynote addresses by industry pioneers, presenting company and sponsor exhibits, and panel discussions on topics that are key to entrepreneurial success. Previous keynote speakers included Mike Levy (Founder, Sportsline), Ed Iacobucci (Founder of Citrix Systems), Christos Cotsakos (Former Chairman of E*Trade), Daniel Cane (Founder of Blackboard and Modernizing Medicine), Armando Escalante (Former CTO of LexisNexis), Lew Temares (Dean and Former CIO, College of Engineering, University of Miami) Kevin Hooper (SVP at Hewlett-Packard), Monica Leuchtefeld (EVP at Office Depot), and many more.
ETBS provides entrepreneurs, business leaders, investors and service providers a venue to learn about the latest advances in science and technology, hear from serial entreprenerus & industry veterans who have started and grown successful companies, and discover new partnership opportunities.
Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum sponsorship opportunities are available.
