Dealmaker Media brings together some of the most interesting and innovative minds in the Silicon Valley. The network is one of the best in Silicon Valley, and it takes a lot for me not to attend one of their events.
Surviving and succeeding in both LA and Silicon Valley has a lot to do with your network and support base. Learning from peers, mentors, and other successful individuals is all part of personal growth and Dealmaker Media is an essential part of that network.
VP and CIO, Virgin America
Dealmaker Media has clearly succeeded in filtering out the noise around technology and innovations, and in highlighting meaningful, relevant and sustainable technologies and technology companies. This is an invaluable and highly recommended partnership for technology executives who are constantly besieged by fiction rather than fact.
Principal, Norwest Venture Partners
"Dealmaker Media has a been a terrific partner to work with in terms of seeking out the best-of-breed emerging startups - unlike many "flavor of the year" conferences, Dealmaker's Under the Radar conference goes to great lengths to truly source qualified and compelling next-generation founders."
Startup CEO, Billing Revolution
"Dealmaker Media's events are top notch. The level of exposure and credibility we now enjoy has exceeded our wildest expectations."
Principal, First Round Capital
"Dealmaker's community and conversations stand out for their quality and depth. Through it, I've developed relationships with both entrepreneurs and VCs whom I otherwise wouldn't have met."
General Partner, Battery Ventures
Under the Radar always attract the best investors, IT visionaries and elite startups. It continues to be the single best event for networking.
CEO, Puppet Labs
"Under the Radar was a great show to highlight Puppet Labs, and especially our strength in the cloud. The meetings I had with industry peers, investors and press as were extremely valuable. I would definitely recommend this show to any early stage startup."
VP Games & Digital Distribution, Marvel Entertainment
Unplugged was by far one of the best industry events I have attended
in a long time.
Head of AKQA Mobile
“I thoroughly enjoyed Under the Radar, it was brilliant. This really does set the benchmark for mobile technology events. There was a great selection of companies taking part, which of course makes or breaks such an event. Both the caliber of companies and diversity of offering was well chosen.”
VP & ECD, R/GA
“Under the Radar is an excellent event. I tell everyone that it is probably one of the most valuable and interesting mobile events in the U.S.”
Strategy and Emerging Service, AT&T
“Wouldn't it have been nice to know about eBay or Google just as they were getting started? Under the Radar gives you that opportunity, bringing together a thoughtful mix of CIOs, investors, business development and other industry execs, analysts, and media into an entertaining and insightful high-speed short-form blitzkrieg of information and ideas. As these startups finish coming in Under the Radar, it means that they'll either soon be shot down, or accelerate to new heights."
VP, Sony Pictures Television
"I can't say enough good things about how well constructed the Unplugged event was to effectively break up the natural clicks that can easily form. It was great seeing some old colleagues, and even better meeting new ones, who I already have follow-up calls planned, and hopes for some lucrative relationships."
Strategy and Business Development, New Business Customer Solutions Group, Best Buy
“The Under the Radar conference is one of the best sources to identify
and network with emerging digital companies outside of the direct VC
network. I’ve gone to the UTR event two years in a row and this has
been time well spent with actionable follow ups. The quality of
companies is very high thanks to Deal Maker Media’s scoping efforts.
This is definitely a great source for emerging digital business
Co-Founder at GoInstant
"Under the Radar was 2 days of intense networking with customers,
partners and other startups. No other conference even comes close in
quality or quantity of opportunities."
CEO and Founder, Salespod
The level of networking on the conference was wonderful, but coaching calls were something extra. We participated in the Seedcamp and StartupWeek workshops, which were both very good, but this was even better. [The Dealmaker Team] did great job helping us shape our message.
VP Engineering, Gilt Groupe
"The under the Radar conference is a great way to quickly come up to speed with the latest activities of the companies floating in the stratosphere of the cloud computing revolution, and connect with their key players."
Chief Systems Engineer, Visa
"A clever mixture of ‘speed dating’ and ‘American Idol’ meets ‘Shark Tank’, Under the Radar offers a rare, up-close, privileged opportunity to feel the pulse of innovation and ideation in the technology field and pluck product offerings (in their most succulent stage) from a veritable garden of opportunity."
Chief Product Officer, OkCupid Labs SF
"...Was an excellent opportunity to get a close look at emerging technical and business talent - the Dealmaker team did a great job of curating a fascinating set of companies working at the leading edges of their fields..."
Jay H Lee
VP, Business Development, American Express
UTR is by far, one of the more unique conferences I've attended. I've been able to meet a group of qualified, innovative companies in an collaborative and fun setting and squeeze a month's worth of meetings into two days. Great ROI on time spent. Well done.
SVP & CIO, Levi Strauss & Company
“A great event. A great way for us to see where technology is heading and meet face-to-face with innovators and thought leaders.”
