E20X Innovation Lab
Reinvigorating the hospitality technology industry, HFTP’s hugely popular Entrepreneur 20X (E20X) program features ambitious, innovative Startup and Series A entrepreneurs presenting breakthrough business concepts. Each HITEC, between 12-18 pitchers are chosen by industry experts from a large field of applicants to compete at E20X. Their week starts with mentoring from hospitality technology veterans, then a lively pitch competition in front of a room full of HITEC attendees for the coveted E20X Judge’s Award, a complimentary spot in the E20X Pavilion on the HITEC show floor, speaking slots in the Digital Den, and a chance to win the attendee-voted favorite, the People’s Startup Award. HFTP gives these innovators unprecedented exposure both before, at and after the show, putting them in front of a great deal of people they simply couldn’t reach on their own.
E20X debuted in 2015 at HITEC Austin and the response was overwhelming pushing a global expansion with its first European E20X at HITEC Amsterdam. Interested in competing in a future E20X or know the perfect candidate? Have questions about the competition? Stop by and see us.
