At the Investor Feedback Forum, the panel and the startup pitches are integrated into a single session. Startups pitch to a panel of early-stage technology investors.  Each startup gives a pitch and brief demonstration of his/her product.  The panel and audience ask follow-up questions after each pitch.  The panel gives constructive feedback to each startup pitching.  At the end of the series of pitches, the audience votes for their favorite pitches via Twitter.  The winners are announced and prizes are awarded.  Then we go for drinks nearby.
