Investor Kickoff
at Expo East

September 21st, 2023 | Pennsylvania Convention Center | Philadelphia, PA


The Investor Kickoff is purpose-built for investors, featuring top innovators from the 2023 NCN cohort.


By attending, you’ll get a sneak peek at highly-curated companies in trending categories actively seeking capital at the show. You’ll also hear an overview of the natural products investment landscape and interact with expert presenters.



Attendees will receive a list of Exhibiting Brands Seeking Capital, featuring companies actively seeking external partners at Expo East.

Exhibiting Companies Seeking Capital

We provide investors with a list of Expo East exhibitors seeking capital, partnerships or exits; complete with booth numbers and contact details. Investors use this as a guide when they walk the show floor and for following up with exhibitors after the show’s over.

NCN makes this list available to NCN Cornerstone Investors before Expo East and is available to all session attendees.
