Description

Join us for the second year of Start@ets hosted by Zpryme on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 at the Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar. This year’s program will feature a jam-packed afternoon filled with engaging talks, dynamic brainstorming sessions and a rousing pilot pitch competition. Toast the winning team and mingle with esteemed guests at our networking reception at The Highball following the event. Don’t miss it!

In partnership with Austin Energy and Austin Technology Incubator (ATI), Zpryme will execute a Pilot Pitch Competition that will result in innovative pilots being proposed to key decision makers and experts in the fields of energy, smart cities, transportation, mobility, EVs and energy storage. The winning pilot will be awarded with a MOU to enter further discussions with the appropriate party (e.g city, utility). A cash prize of $5,000 will also be awarded to the winner.

The goal of this year’s contest is to demonstrate new solutions (companies) that can solve real-world problems. Topics include: augmented reality, virtual reality, utility solutions, smart city applications, mobility, transportation, renewables and/or energy storage.
