The 2021 Featured Company Experience
Audience Members will have the chance to vote during each presentation segment! Your votes combined with judges votes will decide which companies move on to enter the Lion’s Den. 48 companies were chosen. 10 will move on to the Lion’s Den Finale. 3 companies will pitch their innovations LIVE to our Lions on November 4th. Connect with all of our companies after the Lion’s Den at the Gala Reception

What is PACTcapcon like for Featured Companies? 
Out of over 150 submissions, around 45-50 Entrepreneurial Companies are chosen to pitch their innovations live in front of investors, professional advisors and key decision makers at the Capital Conference. During pitching hours, featured companies receive direct feedback with hopes to take home funding, gain experience and make lasting business connections. Then, select companies are chosen to enter the Lion’s Den for a shot at on-site commitments from highly successful entrepreneurs turned investors. Over the past 6 years companies have raised $5m in the aggregate of funding.
