Pelonkey goes to Vegas for Tech Cocktail Celebrate next week!

It’s the conference we have all been waiting for – Tech Cocktail Celebrate! This is a nation-wide expo and pitch competition that gathers in Vegas to see who the hottest showcasing startup is. Back in July, Neekola took Pelonkey out to Vegas for Tech Cocktail Week and won that competition, earning Pelonkey the chance to pitch with double the competition to national investors, techies, and other important people in the tech world next week!

Tech Cocktail Celebrate is completely worthwhile with everything that it offers to both its competitors and participants. The conference presents a fantastic line up of speakers from companies like Zappos, SmartThings, and KISSmetrics to name a few. David Copperfield will be speaking as well, which is super exciting! For the competitors, there are also over 30 mentors available for personal business sessions, including 1776‘s own Donna Harris! Aside from an awesome expo opportunity that Pelonkey plans to take full advantage of, there will also be unlimited networking opportunities as well as fun parties and classes to attend.
