This UNLEASH Startup Award semi-final will be the only one to take place onsite, and is a must-see for anyone interested in the latest up-and-coming HR Tech. The top semi-finalists will compete in a particularly dynamic competition, pitching their product at hyper speed (three minutes or less!) and receiving instant live feedback from our expert panel of judges.

Our judges will provide fresh, critical, and very direct feedback before ultimately selecting one winner based on both pitch and product. The company with the most “buy-in” will take the grand prize: a guaranteed competition spot in the UNLEASH Startup Award finale at UNLEASH America 2023!
