)-- The Software and Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, today announced the first group of 8 companies selected to present at its Strategic & Financial Investment Conference. The event will be held June 18 at the Princeton Club in New York City.
The Strategic & Financial Investment Conference serves as an exclusive opportunity for to hear about some of the most innovative emerging companies in media and digital content, information services, education technology, and software services sectors. During this one-day event, 24 hand-picked and carefully screened businesses will present to an invitation-only audience of investors, venture capitalists, M&A firms, corporate development officers and other investment professionals. Now in its fifth year, the conference has produced financial partnerships that have helped accelerate the growth of presenting companies.
Debuting this year is an exciting opportunity called Lightning Round, where the top three attendee-selected presenting companies will compete to win a prize. The winner will receive an opportunity that’s invaluable to any company presenting on June 18 – direct access to key players in the investment industry who will spend time with executives from the winning company and provide input and guidance to their business.
