Arlington, VA, 19 Nov. 2018 – The Consumer Technology Association™ (CTA), ShowStoppers® and the New York Angels today announced they are partnering again to help entrepreneurs and startups raise early seed funding – by producing the seventh-annual official “pitch” event for startup companies that exhibit at Eureka Park during CES 2019, the world’s gathering place for all who thrive on the business of consumer technologies.
“ShowStoppers LaunchIt” is a CES 2019 Media Day Power Session scheduled for Monday, January 8, 2:30-4:30 p.m. at Mandalay Bay, one day before the CES show floor opens.
Angel investors and venture capitalists will again judge 10 of the hottest companies to take the stage at ShowStoppers® LaunchIt, after selecting finalists from the more than 1,200 young, innovative, transformative and entrepreneurial startups that exhibit in Eureka Park, a marketplace within CES where retailers, venture capitalists, manufacturers and others will find entrepreneurs launching new products, services, apps and ideas.
Companies that exhibit inside Eureka Park are invited to apply to pitch for funding at ShowStoppers LaunchIt: http://launchit.showstoppers.com.
There is no application fee, and there is no fee charged to companies that are selected to pitch.
“We are looking for the best and brightest,” said Brian Cohen, chairman, New York Angels. “We have sourced exciting startups for new investment at ShowStoppers LaunchIt. This seventh edition of the Eureka Park pitch event will, again, highlight these innovative companies to CES attendees and the world.”
