How It Works:

The matching process is based on several criteria including industry category and company focus, stage of the company's development, and alignment with the investment thesis of the participating investors and corporations. This ensures that the matchmaking process is tailored to the specific needs and goals of each participant, maximizing the chances of successful connections.

Any tech company seeking investment funding or partnership is welcome to submit for CTA Match at CES. There is no fee for CTA Members to participate; a $1000 fee will be assessed for non-member startup submissions. The submissions process will close at midnight PT Friday, November 17. Participants will be notified of any matches for which they have been selected by December 20, 2023. See additional terms and conditions here.

“The CTA Match event provided an effective and efficient way to meet with the most innovative startups at CES 2023. With an opportunity to review pre-curated companies in my firm’s area of investment interest and dual-opt in match system, my colleague and I were able to meet a slate of companies that were both interesting to our firm and who were interested in meeting us. Bravo to the CTA for a program that brings together members of their community to fuel the global innovation ecosystem.”

"CTA Match has been of incredible value to our software startup. It was an excellent opportunity to be matched with investors that were not on our radar. Getting matched has been smooth and easy for us, as CTA did most of the heavy lifting in vetting startups and matching them with potential investors. I recommend CTA Match to anyone looking for new investors in North America.”
