The session will be moderated by consultant and innovation expert Joanna Bloor. (CLICK HERE for registration and info.)

The selected companies were chosen in a self-entering competition process. Each submitted a video describing the business. Here are the winners who appear in Las Vegas:

Spoken Layer (Will Mayo): Transforming written media into sound experiences.

Reacht (Dan Morrison): Quick and meaningful audience engagement with radio.

Nobex (Cait Watson): Live radio mobile streaming platform.

6 Seconds (Michael Robertson): Instant mobile radio listening with song search.

The audience will have an opportunity to choose their favorite presenter/company, via live polling after the panel session.

Besides bragging rights to the winner, each startup will gain valuable exposure to industry contacts. The takeaway for attendees will be a view into the early-stage innovation space of streaming audio, and contact with entrepreneurs on the rise.
