The Symposium will showcase a wide breadth of presenting companies spanning the agriculture, food, medical devices, life sciences, and emerging technologies industries seeking to raise seed capital through Series A/B funding at the annual event. The versatile online platform will allow companies to utilize video pitches, live chat, private meeting rooms, calendaring options, and customizable company profile pages.
