Top Start-Ups to take the stage at US computer graphic pioneer NVIDIA’S Annual Emerging Companies Summit
NVIDIA has announced announced that its third annual Emerging Companies Summit (ECS 2010) will showcase the world’s most inventive start-up companies who use graphics processing units (GPUs).
The summit — a key part of NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) — is a unique forum for startups to showcase innovative applications and technologies that leverage GPU to solve visual and high-performance computing challenges.
ECS 2010 will be held Sept. 21-23 in San Jose, California. It follows two previous ECS shows which successfully brought together entrepreneurs with those who fund their ventures. In 2009, ECS featured presentations by 60 emerging companies from 15 different countries.
In addition to start-up presentations, ECS 2010 will feature a series of panel discussions. There will also be a “fireside chat” with Jen-Hsun Huang, NVIDIA’s president and CEO, to be moderated by Quentin Hardy, national editor at Forbes magazine.
A new feature of ECS 2010, “CEO on Stage,” includes the heads of a select group of start-ups. CEOs will each introduce their companies and interact with a panel of industry analysts, investors and technology leaders. These companies will be selected by an advisory committee. The deadline for applications is Aug. 1, and Interested companies can submit their proposals at the GTC 2010 Submissions site. www.nvidia.com/gtc.
