20 Springboard-Supported Companies To Present At Atlantic Venture Forum
June 06th, 2014
The organizers of Atlantic Venture Forum have named 24 companies to present at the two-day event next month, representing all the main segments of the startup community.
The second annual AVF, presented by Critical Path Group, will take place at the Westin Nova Scotian in Halifax on June 17-18. One of the great features of the event is that local companies get to pitch to the entire forum, which includes local and international investors.
There will be two more presenting companies than last year, and one person familiar with the deliberations said the organizers had a tough time deciding which of the 65 entries should take the stage.
Half the companies are in the IT space, which means the organizers are giving ample air time to life sciences and cleantech companies.
