A note from Bob Davis, GP at Highland Capital Partners.

In another step to be helpful for startups coming out of universities, I want to bring to your attention a “no strings attached” offer to demo and participate in a great industry conference.
The APPNATION NYC + TV 3.0 Conference with about 400 attendees will be held in NY on May 16th during Internet Week.  As part of the conference, Highland Capital Partners will be providing a handful of startups the (free) opportunity to showcase their products in front of the eco-system in which we live - digital marketers, advertisers and agencies, device manufacturers and investors.  I can't promise it will change their world but it should be a nice step.
They’ll receive complimentary access to a demo pod and a full showcase package to be featured in THE GARAGE ­– a special interactive area within the exhibition designed exclusively for early stage developers seeking exposure to the entire app world (a $2,000 value).
If you know of a startup that would benefit from this opportunity, just direct them to to learn more and apply by the April 9th deadline.  The application is simple and won't take more than a few minutes. This is not a Highland event and we require nothing from the students in return.  It's simply our way of providing the next generation of entrepreneurs with exposure and experience.
