TechBUZZ provided us with a very focused public platform to reach a lot of our target audience. We consider our participation a great success that allowed us to 'burst onto the scene' and we anticipate primary, secondary and tertiary level benefits from our participation. Invaluable."

What is TechBUZZ?

Over the past few years, the Mid-Atlantic region has emerged as the birthplace of some of the hottest ideas, game-changing innovations and applications of cutting-edge technologies in the United States. Whether these ideas are developed by design or by trial and error, they are being invented, created and developed in our area.

TechBUZZ was launched in May 2011 as a half-day conference preceding Capital Connection in response to the growing impact start-ups and seed-stage companies are having in recent years on the investment ecosystem overall. MAVA is dedicated to continuing to foster and celebrate this vital area of our membership by bringing together investors and entrepreneurs in a dynamic and meaningful format.

TechBUZZ shines a well-deserved light on the visionary innovators and company-builders in our region who are actively developing their concepts, testing their beta or prototype products and services and pursuing a path toward market entry.
