Arlington, VA, 7 Nov. 2019 – The Consumer Technology Association™ (CTA), ShowStoppers® and the New York Angels today announced they are partnering again to help entrepreneurs and startups raise early seed funding – by producing the ninth-annual official “pitch” event for startup companies that exhibit at Eureka Park during CES® 2020, the global stage for innovation.
