Innovation Showcase

What do you get when you bring together founders, inventors, innovators and entrepreneurial thinkers to share what they're working on? An innovation showcase featuring new products, technologies and innovations being developed by the region's top startups, established businesses, large companies and social ventures.

How It Works

 The Innovation Showcase provides an open, trade show style format to highlight innovators and their innovations to entrepreneurs, business leaders, students, educators, policy makers, investors, influencers and others - all in one place.  

Audience Choice Awards

Those chosen to participate in the showcase will have the opportunity to gain recognition and maybe even take home a check as an "Audience Choice" award winner. All showcase awards will be determined by attendee vote, so you may want to encourage supporters to attend neoFest.
