Semi-finalists Announced

Thank you for participating in the RootsTech Innovator Showdown.  After a rigorous judging process, the semi-finalists have been selected. Congratulations to those who have made it this far!  Each of the semi-finalists is invited to travel to Salt Lake City, Utah, where the final round of judging will take place in front of a live audience and a panel of judges. We look forward to seeing who comes out on top!

The 2017 semi-finalists are:

Double Match Triangulator
Emberall
JoyFLIPS
Kindex

We want you to know how difficult the decisions were as we narrowed the field in preparation for the conference. There were so many interesting technologies and excellent solutions to choose from. We hope all of those who entered the Showdown will consider coming to RootsTech, to participate in the largest family history and technology conference in the world. To make it easier, we are offering each participant a special discount on full conference passes to RootsTech.  We will send you a promo code to use for a discount on RootsTech passes in a future update.

In addition to the conference discount, we are also offering a special opportunity for you to showcase your product or service in front of the 23,000 attendees that are expected to visit the Expo Hall during the show. If you are interested, we can get you a mini-booth (5x10ft) in an area we call “Innovator Alley.” This area gets a lot of traffic, and is a very cost effective way for new innovators to make a splash at RootsTech. Submit your request at the Exhibitor page. If you have questions, feel free to use the Discussion area for RootsTech on Devpost.

Thank you,

The RootsTech Team
