REVERSE DEMO DAY U.S. / EUROPE - JUN 9 2021
REVERSE DEMO DAY Asia-Pacific - JUL 21 2021
Venture University is an investor accelerator (vs. a startup accelerator), so rather than having startups pitch at DEMO DAY, we have the investors within the cohort pitch at a REVERSE DEMO DAY, where they present the companies they selected to invest in and explain why they chose to invest.
Cohort 12 investors are part of five deal sourcing teams: Consumer, Enterprise, Fintech, Frontier, Healthcare, and PropTech. Over 11 weeks they will source investment opportunities, meet with investors and startups, conduct due diligence, and invest in ~3-5 companies. Meet Cohort 12.
At REVERSE DEMO DAY each investment team will share their key findings and insights from their due diligence for why they got excited about the market, the team, the solution and strategy, and some of the key traction metrics that made them say "yes" to invest.
