Are you on the lookout for a platform to exhibit your company, share your story, and inspire others? The Innovation Showcase at the MIT Sloan CIO Symposium is committed to provide that platform.
Every year, the Innovation Showcase highlights 10 outstanding, early stage companies with cutting edge solutions that combine both value and innovation to Enterprise IT. This is a great way for start-ups to establish a market presence and our Finalists have achieved significant success.
If you think your early stage company is unique , and wants a special opportunity to meet with the world's best, brightest, and most successful technology executives and companies, then apply for this year's Innovation Showcase before April 1, 2018.
