NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Tech Titan Summit is where “Shark Tank” meets “American Idol.” Technologists face off against each other on the Tech God Stage competing to be crowned “Tech God Champion,” in front of a live audience of investors and hiring companies. These Tech Titans evaluate the capabilities of the technologists and make offers of employment, vote for their favorite “Tech Gods” and bid against each other to make investments in the people, companies and inventions presented during the Summit.
In an effort to help young companies obtain investment capital and enable technologists to more easily network better employment opportunities, Kickstarter Heroes contributing $250 receive General Admission to the Summit and, as a group, shall be admitted to the front of the line at the Tech Titan Table. The Tech Titan Table is a center of activity at the conference, where Tech Gods “speed date” with the Tech Titans for jobs and investments.
Kickstarter Heroes can also have their five minutes of fame on the Tech God Stage via a “Stage Pass,” along with General Admission to the Summit, for only $1,000. Robert Kelly, CEO of Tech Gods, Inc. said, “Kickstarter contributors at this level avoid the voting process at the Summit, and can guarantee themselves a spot on stage where they present their capabilities, inventions and companies in front of the Tech Titans, who bid accordingly. General admission is normally $2,995, giving these heroes a savings of nearly $2,000, while providing them an invaluable marketing experience.”
The Summit’s hard rule of “No Commissions,” and “No Finder’s Fees” on investments, along with the low 7% placement fee for Tech Gods hired during the Summit, are designed to set the recruiting and investing industries on their ear---particularly for emerging technology companies and talent. Kelly continued, “We love being a disruption to these two staid and tired, old industries.”
Without a middle man in the way and a bargain at the investment table, the Tech Titan Summit is a first in the technology industry and definitely a place where “Shark Tank” meets “American Idol.”
