NEW YORK, NY. — September 11, 2015 — Organizers of the &THEN Conference set to be hosted in Boston in early October, announced last week the 15 Marketing and Advertising Technology competitors who have been selected to pitch their business in October for a grand prize package of $40,000 in cash. The competitors were selected from hundreds of applications from across the United States.
“The startup scene now is different than it was even five years ago. The bar is much higher,” said David Kohl, CEO of Morgan Digital Ventures and Program Curator for the HOT ZONE. “Today’s digital media startups are real, and bringing powerful solutions that can solve some of the supply-chain’s most vexing challenges. We’re putting 15 innovative companies in front of &THEN attendees, all in the same place at the same time. It’s going to be a great way for marketers to get exposure to a group of companies that have been hand-picked for their innovative solutions to marketers’ burning needs.”
The 15 startups advancing to the HOT ZONE competition in Boston are:
Gracious Eloise Inc.
These 15 early-stage adtech and martech companies will present their disruptive solutions directly to thousands of data-driven marketers, publishers, agencies and information services companies to &THEN attendees. Five finalists will be selected on Monday, Oct. 5 to pitch-off on Tuesday, Oct. 6, for cash prizes before a panel of industry executives and &THEN attendees. Learn more about the conference here.
