Startup Expo and Pitch Participants Announced

For the last five years, hundreds of startups have exhibited at Pause. And many of those startups have gone on to do amazing things. Products have been validated. Relationships have been cemented. Small seeds of ideas have grown into actual products that people know and love.

If selected, your startup will be showcased at Pause Fest for one day. You’ll be given the chance to pitch to VCs, win awesome prizes, talk to experts from a range of different industries, and immerse yourself in a pool of big fish. It’s a great opportunity to gain insight and exposure, and it’s a potential jump start for your company.

Startups like Canva, Zero Latency, Plattar launched at Pause Fest some years ago.
