The Vision Tank is the Embedded Vision Summit’s annual start-up competition, showcasing the best new ventures using computer vision and visual AI in their products or services. Open to early-stage companies, entrants are judged on four criteria: technology innovation, business plan, team and business opportunity.
Two awards are given out each year: the Judges’ Award and the Audience Choice Award. The winner of the Vision Tank Judges’ Award will receive a $5,000 cash prize, and both winners will each receive a one-year membership in the Embedded Vision Alliance (a $12,000 value). They’ll also get one-on-one advice from the judges, as well as valuable introductions to potential investors, customers, employees and suppliers.
Each finalist will pitch their company and product to a panel of investors and industry experts in front of the audience at the Embedded Vision Summit on Wednesday, May 22, 2019! Winners will be announced at the end of that session.
