Startup Boost Demo day
This February 12th & 13th (
that could be today, depending on when you are reading this!) global pre-accelerator program Startup Boost, will host a virtual 'demo day' from their 'Fall programs' in Detroit, Dublin, Los Angeles, and New York.

A first for pre-accelerators, the 48hrs long virtual demo day will give registered investors, accelerators, & potential partners access to view pitches by Startup Boost’s Fall alumni, 25 pre-seed/seed stage tech startups from their Fall programs in Detroit, Dublin, Los Angeles, and New York.

Startup BoostStartup Boost, now in its second year, has helped to pre-accelerate over 80 companies from six locations around the world. The six-week long program is unique in that it doesn’t take equity or a fee from their startups. Top entrepreneurs, investors, and mentors come together to volunteer their time to work with these promising startups who stood out from a pool of over 1500 applicants to gain acceptance into Startup Boost.

For the virtual demo day, investors, accelerators and corporate businesses will be able to watch 25 pre-seed/seed tech startups pitching ideas in areas including health, fintech, AI, e-commerce and more.

Registered, ‘attendees’ will be given access to the demo day for 48 hours and will be able to get in touch with teams to invite them to participate in investor meetings, accelerator applications, or partnership discussions.

"The benefit of Startup Boost is that it brings a program to help pre-seed investment teams make the next big step in an under-supported stage to prepare them for accelerators, investment and most importantly revenue generation," explained Gene Murphy a founding member of Startup Boost

The virtual demo day breaks down the geographical and temporal barriers of a traditional demo day, which gives more investors the opportunity to see our high quality teams, and in turn, is an  an added benefit to our alumni to be able to have their companies reach an even wider audience to propel them to higher growth and success.”

On that note, for those wishing to apply to the next program, applications just opened at Pittsburgh is officially launching their first program, which will join Los Angeles, NYC, and Toronto as programs running this Spring. Other programs running this Fall 2019 are in Dublin, Detroit, Chicago, Austin, and other yet to be announced locations.

Gene Murphy is also taking part in Startup Weekend Dublin immigration which comes to Dublin this March from the 8th to 10th.
