If you’re a currently unfunded startup or student run startup there are 20 spots available for the DEMO scholarship (read free) program. DEMO is one of the most lucrative pitch events held in Silicon Valley and startups from “everywhere else” always attend.
During the most recent session, this past spring, we saw Rawporter pitch. Rawporter is a citizen journalism startup based in Charlotte NC. They were one of the scholarship recipients at the last event. We talked with co-founder Kevin Davis after DEMO who provided us with this interview.
Smurks, a Chicago startup also pitched at Demo and we ran this story about the startup that puts the “heart” in the machine. Smurks has found a way to offer a quantified analysis of peoples feelings. Really impressive stuff, check it out here.
TechStars, the nationwide “everywhere else” incubation program has announced that they have two scholarship spots available for the fall DEMO session October 1-3 in Silicon Valley.
The first recipient will be an unfunded TechStars company. The second spot will be for a student run TechStars company.
If you think you’ve got what it takes, you should definitely consider pitching for a spot here.
