One of the best parts of attending the Smart Kitchen Summit is getting a front row seat to brand new technology and innovative products that are coming down the pipeline. The event’s startup showcase is now in its fourth year and invites all startups in the food tech and smart kitchen space to apply for a spot.


The Startup Showcase is the perfect way to demonstrate the most innovative new ideas, products and companies reinventing food, cooking and the kitchen. If that sounds like you, apply today! Anyone with a working product that is either a late-stage working demo or actually shipping, and who will be able to attend the Summit this October in Seattle, is welcome to apply free of charge.

SKS organizers will select 15 startups as finalists who will be invited to the event to demo their product. In addition to an eager audience, finalists will also have a demo space in the heart of the main Summit event and a chance to pitch a panel of judges.

One of the final 15 will crowned the winner of the Startup Showcase on October 9th and will receive a $10,000 cash prize.

To apply, fill out the application and make your case for why you deserve to be a finalist – the more articles, photos, videos and compelling info you can provide on your product and company, the better your chances are of grabbing one of the coveted tables at the 2018 Smart Kitchen Summit.

Past Startup Showcases

The Startup Showcase in 2017 proved to one of the absolute highlights of the Smart Kitchen Summit; attendees poured in to see live demonstrations of a chai tea brewer, a smart kitchen assistant, a crepe-making robot, a connected pantry system, customizable ice pops, and more. Hydroponic gardening system Verdical ended up taking home the trophy — as well as a $10,000 prize.

The deadline for applications is August 17th.
