  • Conversation & connection are key to a successful showcase experience for you and the startups. The Hopin platform is armed with multiple ways to engage with the startups and gives you full control of the video, audio, and chat features. These are the best ways to experience the showcase: 
    • Audio & Video is a key component of the showcase. We recommend that event guests share both their audio and video when in a startup booth.
    • Audio Only is available for attendees who do not want to be seen on camera. 
    • Chat is also a way you can connect with startups during the showcase. When you are in a startup booth you can simply chat with the founders to learn more. 
  • The Main Stage area of the event will be a key activity point for the experience on July 16 & 17. We encourage guests to attend these sessions to orient yourself with the showcase, hear for the MDs, and familiarize yourself with the platform.

The startups may be pitching or having active conversation. That being said, please share your audio and video so the startup knows that you are in their booth.
