Two Ways to Attend:
In-person attendance, featuring real life networking, lots and lots of it.
Remote access for those who prefer to learn on-line
If your application is accepted to Founders Summit you may choose to attend either in person, or on-line. On-line attendees will have access to live streams of every conference session, and can watch the entire program from the comfort of their home or office.
For those that attend TechDay Founders Summit in-person, there will be many networking opportunities built into the day’s schedule, as well snack, coffee and energy breaks. In addition there will be opportunities to meet speakers and industry suppliers and see live demonstrations of their products and services.

Meet founders from around the world, and down the street
Founders Summit will bring together idea stage entrepreneurs, founders, co-founders, and C-Suite startup execs from throughout the global startup community. How do we know we can attract such a broad community? We’ve done it before.

When it became clear that the Covid-19 global pandemic would make it impossible to conduct TechDay business as usual, we launched a series of Town Hall Webinars. These weekly events have brought together literally thousands of startup founders and C-Suite executives, many of which come from beyond the communities that annually attend TechDay events in New York, Los Angeles, and London. In fact, attendees at TechDay Town Hall events have come from more than 30 foreign countries, and nearly half of the fifty United States.

But no matter where they come from, attendance at Founders Summit will be restricted to startup founders, their executive teams, and idea stage entrepreneurs.

Service Solutions, Product Offers, Professional Services
A select number of service providers will be on hand with tabletop exhibits where you can explore solutions to some of the most common challenges faced by startups today. You can visit these suppliers to meet with them to discuss the skills, products, or services they provide.
Sponsor Participation
Organizations that offer services, products, and resources that can help the Founders Summit audience learn best practices, time tested strategies, and leading-edge techniques for managing and growing, better, more successful businesses will benefit from sponsorship, which can include conference session presentation and branded networking opportunities. Sponsors will have the rare opportunity to share content and market insight with a highly curated group of founders, co-founders, and C-Suite teams at Founders Summit.
