  • AdTech
  • MarTech
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Metaverse
  • Blockchain and NFTs
  • Marketing Automation and Personalization
  • E-Commerce and Retail Technology
  • Content Marketing / Marketing Services
  • Data & Analytics
  • CRM
  • SAAS

The one-day, in-person Quantum Marketing themed accelerator program is designed for early-stage companies with a product or service in the market and maximum of Series A funding.  Fifteen (15) companies will be selected and will receive:

  • A day of education, networking and inspiration from leading brand, media, agency, technology, and investment executives
  • Opportunity to pitch before AWNY attendees in-person and virtually
