You're Invited!

Fourth-Annual Startup Showcase

Join us for a celebration of our programs and companies at the 2021 Bounce Startup Showcase!

You are invited as we present a showcase of our most promising startups from each of our six programs. This event is a perfect way for the community to see the outcomes of Bounce’s programming and connect with companies as potential mentors, customers or investors.

In addition to the showcase, this year there will be a half-day of content, which will include entrepreneur-focused workshops and one-on-one time with select business advisors.
