The younger sibling to Europe’s Web Summit, Collision Conference kicked off in New Orleans May 1, 2017 with a pub crawl and cultural crawl for the almost 20,000 people here to either pitch their ideas or learn about and invest in those who have start ups in all stages of development.
Hopeful companies – from early stage to “Unicorns” – have a chance to connect with some of the world’s largest investors and get funding.
