Washington, DC - Feb 27, 2013 - The NAB Show is launching Sprockit, a new program that will give 10 market-ready startup companies the opportunity to present their product or service directly to convention attendees. During the custom-curated, invitation-only experience, startups will present their offerings live at the 2013 NAB Show to be held April 6-11, 2013, in Las Vegas.
Sprockit gives emerging entrepreneurs and their innovations broad exposure through the NAB Show. The 10 selected participants will have pre-scheduled meetings with C-level corporate executives and media outlets, and deliver on-stage presentations alongside some of the biggest names in the industry. Created in partnership with World Series of Start-Ups and Springboard Enterprises, the Sprockit program, under the tagline Gearing Startups for Glory, will launch on April 7 and run through April 11.
Throughout the program, startup leaders will meet one-on-one with entrepreneurs and industry experts for individualized support. Participating startups are currently being evaluated and will be selected by Angel Capital Association, Dell Founders Club, the NAB Show, National Venture Capital Association, Startup America Partnership, The Paley Center and Springboard Enterprises. Startup companies chosen to participate will be announced in March 2013.
