Support your Capital Raising Portfolio Companies in the

2020 Innovation Showcase

The Innovation Showcase provides an opportunity for investing groups, economic development teams and accelerators to present their most promising portfolio companies, who are seeking capital, with unparalleled access to the largest audience of accredited angel investors in the industry.


A key part of the ACA Summit is the “Innovation Showcase” offering investing organizations, accelerators and government agencies the chance to connect their promising portfolio companies to the most active angel investors in the world with pitches to the whole audience, private meetings with investors and recognition for top presenters.

The Innovation Showcase is by invitation only. It is not open to the general public and participating startup companies must be nominated in advance by a qualified fund, accelerator, university, government entity, or trade commission.

The Showcase is limited to 30 companies, where 3 winners will be chosen and will be awarded the opportunity to present their 5 minute pitch to the plenary audience with additional press and PR mentions as our ACA Showcase winners.  The 3 categories are:

  • Best Overall and Most Investable
  • Most Venture Bucks
  • Best Pitch

Update from a winner from last year:

"Overall, our angel investor total since the ACA presentation is now $1,070,000, and in addition, Wellcome Trust, an existing investor, has committed $1,000,000 to our current $3,000,000 round, for a total of over $2 million in cash and commitments to date since the ACA Summit!"
