In addition to our world-class conference program that boasts excellent speakers, we’re expecting over 100 investors at Latitude59 2018. Who’s on the list?

The startups that exhibited at our 2017 Demo Area as well as those that took part in our Pitching Competition had the opportunity to pitch their product on a silver platter. We’re definitely not lowering this bar anytime soon.
