We’re very committed to playing a meaningful role in this community, and to helping early-stage companies find their distinct advantage at the forefront of innovation.

In 2020, 1.35 million technology start-ups launched worldwide, yet only 10% survived as thriving businesses. The NUMEES are designed to bridge this gap and support the growth of tech start-ups to increase their likelihood of success in this challenging technological landscape.
Presented in collaboration with Lab22c, the NUMEES competition boasts an esteemed jury panel of business leaders in advertising and marketing technology. Awards will be granted in four categories:
- Breakthrough Technology: recognizes the ability to break new ground, push boundaries, and challenge conventions through cutting-edge technology.
- Founder of the Year: recognizes innovation in products or services, outstanding customer experience, and market dominance.
- Creator: recognizes creative use of emerging technologies, especially artificial intelligence and machine learning, to reinvent the MarTech field.
- Social Impact: recognizes the work of an NGO, local government, or other non-profit organization positively impacting MarTech.
“Simply put, a great idea is not always enough. Entrepreneurs need mentorship, monetary support, and connections that open valuable doors. We believe the NUMEES will provide that extra push to catapult tomorrow’s breakthrough idea,” said CEO and Founder of Lab22c, Saif Ishoof.
Each winning start-up will receive $25,000 in investments and consulting services from NUMATEC’s portfolio companies. Registration is open to early-stage companies with a presence in Miami or LATAM earning under $1 million in revenue, and allows for both self-nominations and nominations by colleagues.
