    How can I apply to present?

    If you have a promising early stage company that is raising capital or wanting to make a product announcement, please email us at presenters@opus8.com. All presenters also get an exhibit table, which is key during networking sessions before and after the program. We have a Committee review process for prospective presenting companies.
