Each company is given 5-8 minutes to tell the audience their story. The selected companies include cloud-related startups as well as organizations adopting cloud computing.

“Cloud computing is a major step in the evolution of computing. Organizations are adopting it to grow their business. Entrepreneurs are leveraging the cloud to build amazing companies.

In order to foster community building, CloudInno organizers are making the conference free for attendees via sponsorship from General Catalyst Partners and Yottaa. “It is all about the community and ecosystem. Cloud evolution is still at its early stage. Building up a robust community would be very helpful,” added Larry Bohn, Managing Director at General Catalyst Partners. “We at General Catalyst are happy to help organize this event, and contribute to make the conference free for attendees.”
