On November 4, 2021, Public Spend Forum and  GovShop, our AI-enabled Market Intelligence platform, hosted 3 innovative tech companies as part of our biweekly Emerging Tech and Innovation Showcase (apply or attend a showcase by clicking on the link). The tech pitch showcase was designed as part of our mission to create open government markets and strives to build awareness of innovative tech companies in the market. Through the showcase, Public Spend Forum is lowering the barriers and costs for small businesses to enter the public sector market. Each weekly innovation showcase gives entrepreneurs from emerging companies the opportunity to each deliver a technology pitch in front of a diverse audience of government buyers from the local, state, and federal agencies.
