Since 2011 Startup Row has been a part of the vibrant PyCon experience, and has given engineer-founders and their teams the opportunity to showcase their products, receive high quality feedback and connect with leaders in the Python engineering community.
Organizations selected for Startup Row will have the opportunity to exhibit at PyCon 2019. This exposure had led to millions of dollars in funding for participating companies. Groups like Docker got their kick-start from exhibiting on Startup Row.

How To Pitch Your Startup by Wes Winham
You've spent hundreds hours thinking about your startup. You see the potential to make a dent in the universe. You know your customers, their challenges, and your competitors. You have traction.
But now... you have 5 minutes to communicate the immense complexity of what you do to a person with almost no prior knowledge. How do you help them to understand? How do you help them care?
We'll walk through the process of pitching investors from getting the meeting, to telling your story, to following up and creating fear of missing out (FOMO).
