Aronson LLC is proud to launch Aronson P2B, an innovative event for emerging tech companies pitching to cybersecurity and IT buyers. We are taking applications for the opportunity to present your company and product in front of a group of large company corporate executives from prominent organizations. Applications for this event are now closed.

Meet Our Panelists

  • John O’Keefe, CISO, Geico

  • Robert Stasio, CISODupont 

  • TJ Mayotte, CIO, Howard County

Who should apply?

You should apply if you are an early stage/investor-backed technology company disrupting enterprise operations.

How does it work?

Applications for this event are now closed. 

The nomination committee will review applications. Applications with a strong potential fit for the panelists will be evaluated. The nomination committee will interview companies the week of March 3rd – March 12th, to evaluate top companies for the event. Companies will be selected and notified no later than March 15th. Selected companies will be given 5 minutes to virtually pitch to the panelists on March 25th. Once each pitch concludes, the panelists will spend 10 minutes providing feedback on the product/company.

While no individual company will be named as the “winner”, the goal is for each startup to expand its network and for the founders to receive valuable feedback and then leverage those insights to achieve success, whether that is through growth, R&D, acquisition, etc. If any of the panelists or investors are interested in further discussion, they will contact the founders directly.

  • The event will be private. Only the nominating committee and panelists will see your presentation and hear your feedback.
    • A select group of venture capital funds will also be invited to sit in these presentations. Investors will also be provided with a list of select applicants. Please opt-in on the application if you would like your company to be listed in our booklet that will be distributed to VC attendees. This booklet will include a list of applicants including CEO name, company name, and website. However, we will not provide any financial information, customer information, etc.
  • The information supplied on the application is confidential and will not be distributed without your permission.
  • Nominated companies will be given exposure on Aronson’s social channels
