Here are some exciting nuggets you’ll need to check out from UP Global’s Startup Stage (add to your calendar now):

  • The role of crowdfunding in the creation of hardware startups!
  • The importance of startups in the automotive and wearable technology markets!
  • The former CTO of the United States Federal Government!
  • The importance of female entrepreneurs in a thriving startup culture!

With Startup Stage, we’ve created a portal to selected, luminary programming on consumer entrepreneurship during CES, with help from Tech Cocktail, and others.

CES is an exciting preview of consumer culture, for the year to come– and in a year that is sure to feature drones, artificial intelligence, and startup policy discussion in the media, CES ‘14 is not to be missed.

Join UP Global For 'Startup Stage' At CES 2015!

It’s almost that time of year again…CES! The International Consumers Electronic Show features the what’s what of new tech. Last year, I saw everything from a driverless golf cart to a palm-sized MiniDrone.

During the weekend of Jan 6-9 in sunny Las Vegas, techies and enthusiasts from all over the world will wander around neon showrooms and drool over the million dollar displays and exhibits.

Now, not everyone is excited by Sony’s next big thing or the new computer monitor Microsoft is releasing. If that’s the case for you, Eureka Park will be your playground.

Eureka Park is the flagship startup destination at CES, providing a unique exhibiting opportunity to launch a new product, service or idea. You’ll find the latest ideas and innovations from more than 20 countries within this marketplace. Discover the international breadth of budding entrepreneurs and home-grown innovation from fledgling prototypes to progressing startups, spanning the entire consumer technology spectrum.

Yeah, that copy is directly from the website, but you get the idea. New startups! New ideas! New talent! To harness this excitement for good, UP Global has partnered with CES and Magna to host Startup Stage in Eureka Park.

Over four days, Startup Stage will highlight the startup community by featuring prominent entrepreneurs, investors, executives, and media. In addition to the live stage, UP Global will host mentor sessions, pitch competitions, and provide resources and networking opportunities for exhibitors and attendees.

In UP Global’s third year at CES, one event has remained the most popular: The Pitch Challenge. We all know entrepreneurs love to get on stage and be judged by the effectiveness of their startup pitch. Startup Stage will give the entrepreneurs of Eureka Park the opportunity to pitch to a panel of iconic entrepreneurs, receive feedback and win prizes.
