In today’s crowded, yet innovative, business landscape, startups come a dime a dozen, making it that much more difficult for business ideas worthy of praise to get noticed in the crowd. Unfortunately, this can spell doom for any bright idea, no matter how novel and potent with potential it may be, but there are places to look for help.
Get your big idea out there for potential investors and buyers alike to see by attending any one of these four events to bring your startup to the public:
1. The Startup Conference
How does the chance to work with more than 30 panels, workshops, and keynote addresses on the road to startup success sound to you? The 2013 edition of The Startup Conference aims to be a one-stop-shop for those looking to get eyes – and potentially investment dollars – on their big idea, bringing together hundreds of people from various facets of the industry to share insight and experience with one another in the name of success.
Taking place over three full days, The Startup Conference will also feature 100 particular startups from around the world, giving you and your business idea an opportunity to get in on the action, and leaving you at center stage as you work the crowd in the interest of drawing investors and business partners to your innovative idea.
When and Where: The Startup Conference 2013 will be held from February 10-13, 2013, in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee, making this one unique conference that you won’t want to miss!
2. LAUNCH Festival 2013
Whether you’re looking to introduce your big idea to the world, find business partners to jump on board your cause, or you need investors to throw enough cash your way to get things off of the ground, there is no better event than the LAUNCH Festival to unwrap your product or service.
Offering a platform for startups to get the attention their creations deserve, LAUNCH is attended by startups themselves, investors, and business professionals who have the expertise needed to guide your work in the right direction.
When and Where: The LAUNCH Festival 2013 will be held in the San Francisco Design Center Concourse in San Francisco, California from March 4-6, 2013
3. CHI 2013
No matter niche what your startup aims to fill, it is very likely that it will involve people interfacing with a computer of some sort, and this is where the expertise of the world’s technological masters will come in handy, providing you with the tools you need to make your startup the best it can be, while giving you a platform from which to show your stuff, as well.
The CHI 2013 conference takes a distinct look at the way people interact with technology, from modern websites to smartphones, personal computers, tablets, and more, making this a premiere destination for anyone building a startup that features a technological edge. With students, teachers, and entrepreneurs representing more than 60 countries, you stand a very good chance at not only learning to be better at what you do, but of catching the eye of potential investors and business partners in the meantime.
When and Where: The beautiful city of Paris, France will play host to the CHI 2013 conference from April 27 through May 2, 2013 at the Concorde Lafayette hotel in the heart of the city. Get dibs on the perfect accommodations; you can reserve this hotel via Luxury-Hotels.com.
