A Gathering of Innovators

Glendale Tech Week is not just an event; it’s a gathering of innovative minds, a place where connections are forged, ideas are shared, and dreams are nurtured. This year’s event brought together local and regional attendees, including tech leaders, investors, and educational partners. It was filled with learning, networking, and sharing in the spirit of innovation.

The Peak: BrandLens Takes the Honors

At the heart of Glendale Tech Week was the Demo Day Pitchfest, an occasion where early-stage startups like BrandLens had the chance to present their innovative ideas to a panel of judges and investors. It was an intense competition, and we were grateful for the opportunity.

When the moment of truth arrived at the Closing Party & Tech Awards, we were genuinely surprised and honored to be announced as the winners of the Pitchfest competition. To be the winner among so many great startups is humbling.


Our B2B SaaS platform, designed to help businesses crowdsource authentic, engaging, and fun branded video stories, was recognized as a standout innovation.


The Reward and the Future

Beyond the recognition, we were awarded a prize package valued at $139,500. This acknowledgment is a testament to our commitment to innovation and the tireless efforts of our team.


The event also featured a commendation to Disney for its 100th Anniversary and investments in the city. It’s a testament to the thriving tech ecosystem in Glendale.
