Back in November, we joyfully announced the Alcatel-Lucent Demo Pavilion for Glue. To recap: The demo pavilion will house fifteen demo pods. Those pod companies will be chosen on merit (not their ability to pay), and given free pod space (that includes electricity, signage, hard wired internet drop — basically, everything – just show up with your computer). They’ll be chosen by our distinguished panel of judges (see the previous link).

It’s an amazing opportunity for fifteen young startups to show their wares, and interact with hundreds of smart developers, VCs, journalists, etc. In addition, the attendees at Gluecon are going to choose their favorite demo pod company, and that company will be given keynote stage time to present on day 2 of the agenda.

The deadline for applications is March 24th (at 5pm Eastern Standard Time).

Winners will be notified on April 1st (no joke!) and have 48 hours to confirm their participation.

The demo pod participants will then be publicly announced on April 11th. And from there, we’ll be pushing them out to attendees, angels, journalists, etc (and I’ll have some surprises for you along the way).

There are no “size” restrictions per se, though I have a feeling that our judges will be pre-disposed to companies that haven’t already raised 20 million from RockYourWorld Capital.

Think you have what it takes to show up, show your wares, and tell the world? Apply today.

Lastly, it should be noted that none of this would be possible were it not for the amazing support of Alcatel-Lucent. They’re the “community underwriter” and Partner sponsor for Gluecon –and those titles *truly* reflect what they’re all about. Namely, supporting and partnering with the developer community. Big thanks to Alcatel-Lucent! ;-)
