Unbelievable Access
At the conclusion of their session, each speaker will be available for live question and answer follow ups. So you’ll have the chance for live video chat discussions to make sure your questions are answered and your needs are met. It’s like getting instant business advice directly from some of the most successful minds in the field.
High Value Networking -
From Wherever You Are
Using a custom designed interface TechDay Founders Summit will let you network, mingle and connect with your peers at the event. You’ll be able to chat with anyone via private or group text, and even have live video chat with anyone you meet. You can exchange contact information, social media profiles, virtual business cards, and more. You may not be able to shake hands, but you will be able to build the kinds of networks so critical to building your business, especially in the wake of the many disruptions so many businesses have had to contend with this year.

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 TownHall 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 TownHall 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 virtual 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 via one-on-one video chat, text chat, or even schedule some time in a private meeting room to see a private demonstration of the skills, products, or services they provide.
