Five startups will pitch their products and services in security, networking, cloud and more in a live presentation at Interop Las Vegas.
Startups are a critical part of the innovation lifecycle of the IT industry. They take risks on new ideas and new technology, target problems that incumbents can’t or won’t, and bring a fresh perspective to traditional ways of doing things.
Interop attendees can hear directly from five startups in cloud security, mobile security, networking, hybrid cloud, and Big Data at the Startup Hot Seat on Wednesday April 2 in the Lagoon K conference room.
Each startup will get a five to seven minutes to make a pitch for a new product or service. We’ll have a panel of experts on hand to ask questions, but attendees are encouraged to participate by grilling these new companies on why you should take a chance on their vision.
The startups we’ve chosen were all founded within the past five years and are targeting enterprise IT. While young, these companies have all launched products into the market, so the panel isn’t just about news ideas: it’s also about practical solutions to real-world problems.
You’ll hear from the following startups and their leaders:
Big Data: Hadapt, represented by CEO & Co-Founder Justin Borgman
Cloud Security: CipherCloud, represented by Global Director of Cloud Security Willy Leichter
Hybrid Cloud: HotLink, represented by CEO & Founder Lynn LeBlanc
Mobile Security: Mojave Networks, represented by CEO & Co-Founder Garrett Larsson
This session is open to all Interop Las Vegas attendees, including Expo Pass holders. Come and hear innovative ideas, talk with company founders and executives, and ask tough questions.
Interop Las Vegas is almost here, but there’s still time to register. Don’t miss more than 300 exhibitors, compelling keynotes, dozens of sessions and workshops, and the Cloud Connect Summit and InformationWeek Conference all in one place!
