Glossary / Demo Day
Demo Day is an event where startups and entrepreneurs showcase their products or services to potential investors, customers, and the general public. It is usually the culmination of an accelerator or incubator program, where startups have been working on their ideas and refining their business models. During Demo Day, each startup typically presents a pitch or demonstration of their product or service, highlighting its unique features, market potential, and growth strategy. The presentations are often followed by a Q&A session, allowing the audience to ask questions and provide feedback. Demo Day provides startups with an opportunity to gain exposure, attract investment, and secure partnerships or customers. It also allows investors to discover promising startups and make informed investment decisions. Demo Days are commonly organized by startup accelerators, incubators, or venture capital firms. They can be held in-person or virtually, depending on the circumstances and location of the participants.
