Follow My Vote will attend Collision over April 26-28, 2016. Collision has been called “America’s fastest growing tech conference” and was created by the team behind Web Summit, Which Follow My Vote attended in 2015.
Follow My Vote has been accepted to the Alpha Program at Collision! This program is for early stage start ups and provides companies with opportunities to present, pitch, and meet mentors. Follow My Vote will be exhibiting at booth number C-326 in the Sports/Builders/Machine Area on Day 3 of the event, Thursday, April 28.
We are extremely excited to tell attendees about our crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter and our mock election for the 2016 US Presidential Election.
Here is what USA Today is saying about Collision:
Somewhere into this slog of shows falls Collision, the concoction of Irish tech entrepreneur and futurist Paddy Cosgrave. “Paddy is building the next SXSW,” says Oisin Hanrahan, CEO of Handy, a service that lets consumers book household service specialists. “He’s created a vibe” with a melting pot of entrepreneurs, innovators and disruptors sharing ideas and life experiences, Hanrahan says.
In just its third year, Collision — the U.S. edition of the popular Web Summit conference in Europe — is expected to attract 11,000 people and 650 start-ups over three days in the Big Easy this week; the event gets underway on Tuesday. No doubt a large slice of them were motivated to attend because the tech extravaganza overlaps with the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, commonly known as Jazz Fest. The first two Collisions were held in Las Vegas.
Here are some of the companies that will be attending:
