In 2015, Demo Day was an annual event; In 2016, the entire year will be an event.
10 Months | 10 Cities | 100 Startups | 10 Semi-Finalists | 1500 Attendees | 1 Grand Finale Winner
Nothing seems impossible if you set your mind to it. This is exactly what we are reminded of, when we think of how Startups Club's DemoDay has grown every year.
Demo Day was launched in 2013 with one objective and that objective will always remain; we wanted to hack the process for an entrepreneur to reach out to investors, for funds, for validation and for networking. We have been successful in doing so for the past 3 years but in 2016, we set out to ensure that we reach out to the maximum number of entrepreneurs across India. With this objective, we have decided to have our 10 city hunt for the 10 semi-finalists.
We will be inviting applicants in the following cities and will accept around 30 to 40 applications to pitch in each of the cities (Participants Pass) of which our special panel members will short list 10 Quarter Finalists to pitch in the City Wise DemoDay on the below listed dates and venues.
The panel at the city wise Demo Day will choose the Semi-finalist from each city at the event. These prestigious 10 semi-finalists will then be invited, hosted and will be allowed to pitch to the panel at the Grand Finale at Chennai in November 2016.
All Quarter Finalists to the Semi Finalists will get mentoring, structuring and support on getting prepared for pitching plus connect with the panel members.
FINALE WINNER will get;
Hosted at Chennai
Opportunities for Seed & Angel Investments
Out-reach & promotions
We have prizes at all levels, reaching to the Finale level.
