What is neoFest?

More than 200 years ago, the du Pont family chose Delaware as a great place to invent, create and transform, helping to establish a unique culture of innovation.  Today, Delaware is home to many innovative breakthroughs in bioscience, chemistry, advanced materials, agriculture, and financial & business services.   


The inaugural neoFest will extend Delaware's legacy as the First State by bringing people together and shining a spotlight on all things innovative and new - particularly startups and disruptive technologies - and driving the conditions for a thriving culture of innovation and entrepreneurship. 


Join us for this multi-faceted event that celebrates innovation and entrepreneurs.
