The Emerging Companies Summit (ECS) is an integral, part of the GPU Technology Conference (GTC). This year’s event took place Wednesday, April 6 and proved once again to be a great way for companies to present their technologies to potential partners, customers, and investors.
The event has showcased a long list of promising companies that use GPUs as a platform for success, including Oculus Rift (acquired by Facebook for $2 billion), Gaikai (acquired by Sony for $380 million), and Natural Motion (acquired by Zynga for $527 million). This year featured $100K Early Stage Challenge winner Sadako Industries, while 2014 winner MapD recently landed a $10 million investment.
Presented by NVIDIA, GTC is comprised of the annual conference, year-long webinar series, and workshops that connect the global community of developers, researchers, and scientists through unique educational and networking opportunities.
