Each event is designed to meet your local entrepreneurial community needs. By doing extensive market research and surveys, we determine the main pain points of startups in your local community.

If you want to be a speaker at one of our events, submit your information and our team will reach out to you!


Each participating startup in the booth area is handpicked to align with the overall event theme and goal. By doing a "needs evaluation" on each startup, we identify their pain points, and look for potential partners and companies that will benefit the entrepreneur. We work to prepare each event participant, so they are completely engaged at the event.

At the event, a matchmaking booth area allows selected startups a chance to showcase their products/technologies, and introducing them to product companies, potential partners, and investors. Product companies will have a glimpse at the new products on the local market, and investors will be able to gauge reactions to determine which products are viable candidates for investment opportunities.

Tech to Markets' partners will be on hand to present their services and share their expertise in an ever-changing market.

Only the best fit for this event will be there to help bring the most value to participants.

Participants from your local media will have a chance to learn about new products in the community, and can bring exposure to all event participants, before, during, and after the event. They often share stories with the local community that brings these products to life and help everyone thrive.

Every participant comes to this event with goals in mind, and our mentoring process before and during the event helps all parties achieve those goals.
