IP EXPO announces Futures Den area for enterprise startups

Ahead of its major IT enterprise event next month, IP EXPO has announced the launch of the Futures Den, a space in which tech startups will be able to engage with end-users.

Developed in partnership with Tech Trailblazers (opens in new tab), a global competition dedicated to enterprise startups, the area will provide a suitable home for startups to demonstrate their products, as well as allow IT decision makers to get an insight into how the future of technology is shaping up.

"IP EXPO has always been about bringing our audiences the most current trends and technologies in a collaborative and engaging environment," said IP EXPO content director Mike England. "With Futures Den we are taking this a step further by introducing visitors to startups who are driving innovation and delivering the technologies of tomorrow."

A special education area will also form part of the Futures Den, where startups will be able to deliver short presentations on how they have conquered enterprise IT problems.

"These entrepreneurs now have a space in which to interact with their future customers, exchange stories with other startups and hear from successful young companies, learning from their experiences," continued England.

The Futures Den will also host a range of informal debates discussing some of the biggest hurdles faced by startups in today's world.
