Here’s what you need to know. The Innovation Showcase is July 11th, 2013. Applications are open now for companies who want to exhibit and pitch. The top presenting companies are competing for over 60K in cash and prizes. It’s free (but competitive) to exhibit and pitch. Companies sign up to exhibit and pitch  here.

Now for more details.

This is a call to companies seeking to exhibit and pitch at the 2013 Innovation Showcase.

Entering its fifth year, The Innovation Showcase has grown into Indy’s premier event connecting fundable companies (of all stages) with top local and regional investors all while creating an undeniable energy fueled by Indy’s incredible entrepreneurial ecosystem.

This year’s event has grown even larger and will be held at the Dallara IndyCar Factory in the shadows of the famed Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

And this year we’re upping the stakes for our exhibiting startups. Each entrepreneur will have the opportunity to pitch to our investor panel for a chance to win more than $60,000 in cash and tangible services including:

5K in legal services from  Barnes & Thornburg
5K in web development from
5K in PR services from  Blast Media
5K in Venture Coaching from  DeveloperTown
5K in accounting services from  Lehman’s Terms
5K in branding services from  The Momentum Group

Best of all, the top presenters from the pitch competition will gain access to the most well-known angel investors in the area. At least two presenters will go straight in that evening to make private pitches to  HALO and  Elevate Ventures. They (and maybe other presenters) will also gain access to guaranteed pitches to  Stepstone Angels, Purdue’s  P3 Alliance, IU’s  Innovate Indiana FundGravity Ventures,  Allos Ventures and  xCap Angels.

The deadline for company submissions is fast approaching. So if you think you have what it takes to mix it up with the region’s top entrepreneurial companies — we encourage you to apply now for one of the spots in the showcase. The process for companies to exhibit and pitch starts here:

Looking forward to seeing you there
