Private company presentations are the most significant element of Summit programming, with selected companies presenting on seven stages throughout the venue.

Chief executive officers of private technology companies present to a community of accomplished, senior-level venture capital investors, entrepreneurs, and corporate executives. The Montgomery Summit has been a valuable fundraising, strategic development, and networking event for hundreds of successful tech companies since 2003.

About the companies

Nominated companies are reviewed by Summit staff, partners, and a group of senior investors from some of the top venture and growth funds in the country. In 2016, we received and sourced over 4,000 nominations for under 150 presenting spots. Presenting companies are divided into three tracks.

About the presentations

Company presentations are typically delivered by a company’s CEO. If the CEO is unable to present, we will consider requests to allow another senior executive at the company to present on the company’s behalf, most frequently a CFO or COO.

Each company presenter is provided a 30-minute time slot with 20 minutes to present, 5 minutes for questions and answers, and 5 minutes for transition periods.
