The Start-Up Competition
INTO
THE
DEN

What is Into the Den?

Intro the Den, sponsored by Taylor Vinters, is designed to shine a light on the possibilities of applied AI.

Expect a Dragon’s Den-esque pitching experience. In Round One, 30 start-ups will have three minutes each to share their elevator pitches. In Round Two, 5 of the best will face a 10 minute grilling from our judges – with each judge sharing constructive feedback before the winner is chosen.
