Collision brings together Fortune 500 companies, ground-breaking startups and world-class speakers. All the founders had the opportunity to apply for PITCH competition, 40 Words competition, and mentor hours. HyIvy Health has been shortlisted for the group rounds of the PITCH competition, which will be judged offline before the Collision event. The group round winners will progress to the quarter-final, semi-final and the final will be streamed for the first time on the Centre Channel during the event.
2unify, BData, Imaginable Solutions, and HyIvy Health will also enjoy watching live stream stage content, access to Collision networking tools, talking with a dedicated startup success manager. They will be invited to exclusive startup sessions, mentor hours with Collision’s speakers, startup roundtables, and startup masterclasses. This will allow the founders to connect with top tier investors from the world’s leading funds.
Collision will feature an impressive line-up of 500 speakers including successful entrepreneurs, celebrities, and politicians. Last year the event welcomed 634 speakers, 850 investors, 1,008 startups, and 32,000 attendees from 140 countries.
