UNDER THE RADAR is the Silicon Valley’s most effective innovation showcase and business development conference. Technology buyers from MTV, Tesla Motors, Microsoft, ING, Zynga, Google, Salesforce.com, Rackspace and more attend to meet with the carefully curated startups.

Under the Radar is looking for the hottest new startups disrupting today’s market in major ways. If you’re a startup with a great offering, apply to present at the next Under the Radar Conference on November 9-10, 2011. You’ll be following in the footsteps of the greats including LinkedIn, Box.net, Wufoo, Tungle, and hundreds more!

HOW UNDER THE RADAR WORKS: A handful of the industry’s most compelling startups are selected to present to experts and technology executives who are specifically looking to partner with and acquire new technologies.

For the sake of making it fun for all attendees and participants – it’s rolled out “American Idol” style. Depending on the companies we choose to present and the judges we choose to invite – categories are created and judges are placed according to what they’ve communicated to us as areas of interest.

CATEGORIES UNDER THE RADAR IS INTERESTED IN INCLUDE: Location/GEO | Enabling Tools | Payments | Search | e-Commerce | Business Apps | Internet of Things | SMB Tools | Mobile | SAAS

* Unique value proposition
* Ability to monetize product/business
* Large market opportunity
* Must still be considered “under the radar”
* Company must be an actual startup – not a new product offering from a large company

Under the Radar is NOT a funding event, however, in the past three years alone, 62% of the presenters have gone on to raise major funding and/or been acquired by companies such as Google, Yahoo!, Cisco, BT, Microsoft, Twitter, Fox Interactive, and others. It’s inevitable with so many dealmakers in one room.

Are you “OVER THE RADAR” but still have something cool to share? Apply for the Graduate Circle.

Under the Radar is a catalyst for doing deals. Meet with 350 decision-makers from global carriers, brands, technology companies, startups, and investors responsible for helping companies leverage new mobile technology in the fast-evolving digital landscape.

WHAT STARTUPS NEED TO KNOW: We’re not a funding forum, though we admit that over $1.5 Billion has been raised by startups after presenting on our stage in the last three years alone. Get the sales leads and build the relationships that would take your team 6 months or more- all in a condensed 48 hours!
