With 38% women-led ventures and 13% helmed by BIPOC individuals, this year’s roster covers a dynamic spectrum from early to growth-stage companies in both technology and healthcare. The occasion is not just a showcase but a launchpad, culminating in the intense PACT Lion’s Den, where three finalist companies will present their innovations live on stage, vying for real-time funding from an esteemed panel of investors.

Dean Miller, PACT President and CEO, remarked that “each year, the energy, talent, and vision we witness in our Featured Companies are phenomenal. These companies are not just presenting; they are igniting conversations, initiating collaborations, and inspiring the future. And with the PACT Lion’s Den, we add another layer of excitement and opportunity!”
