BIG Talent Showcase - 10:00am - 11:30am

NEW this year to the Startup Expo! This showcase is an opportunity for data science and business analytics students and Symposium attendees to meet with startups to discuss career opportunities.  Must be a registered Symposium attendee to participate.

Un-Demo Day Forum - 12:00pm - 2:00pm

The "Un-Demo Day" event that has no formal presentations or pitches. The "Un-Demo Day" is a little bit like a science fair for startups. Attendees can stop by to meet and see what some new companies are doing in the big data sector.

Pre-Scheduled 1-on-1 Meetings - 2:00pm - 4:00pm 

The Startup Expo also provides the opportunity for startups to have pre-scheduled "1-on-1 Meetings" with corporate partners and attendees of the Symposium. These meetings will be short 20-25 minutes to help with introductions and companies to learn a little more and hopefully build relationships beyond this Expo.

Improptu 1-on-1 Meetings - 4:00pm - 5:00pm

These meetings for anyone who was not able to pre-schedule a meeting and would like to meet with startups to have longer conversations or deeper discussions.

We want attendees to stop by to meet and see what some new companies are doing in the big data sector.  Startups will have booths to display their products or services as well as areas to have a conversation with people who want to learn more.  We encourage people to network, connect, and build relationships!
