The Extreme Tech Challenge team has reviewed each and every one of the nearly 2,000 interested applicants to determine the Top 25 semi-finalists. The hottest areas in technology are represented in this group from medical and wearables to IT and conservation. All are poised and ready to scale.
We announced the Top 25 live on stage at the TIBCO NOW conference in San Francisco on Tuesday, November 4, 2014 at 9:50am Pacific Time. TIBCO is an XTC sponsor, which has offered every single applicant free 3-month access to their amazing data analytics tool, TIBCO Spotfire, to help them strengthen their presentations with real-time information quickly and easily pulled in and beautifully displayed with graphs and/or charts.
The Top 25 will now compete for a chance to be one of the ten finalists who pitch live on stage at the world’s largest consumer electronics show, CES, in Las Vegas on January 8, 2015 at 2pm in the Marco Polo room at The Venetian (Get Tickets HERE). Thanks to TIBCO, the Top 3 winners selected at CES will fly to Sir Richard Branson’s private Necker Island to pitch the legendary entrepreneur, along with an all-star panel of judges.
