Notice: Due to the Coronavirus, our Cohort 7 REVERSE DEMO DAY will be virtual via Zoom, making it available to join globally. To make this a global event, we selected a time that works for many time zones on Wed, March 25th: 7:00pm EST (NYC, Toronto), 6:00pm CST (Chicago, Columbia), 5:00pm (Mexico), 4:00pm PST (San Francisco), 11:00pm (UK / London), and 7:00am (Thu, March 26th, Hong Kong / Singapore). We will also have a recording available for people to watch afterwards as well.

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 7 investors (~0.5% accepted) are part of five deal sourcing teams: Consumer, Enterprise, Healthcare, Fintech, & Frontier Tech. Over 11 weeks they will source investment opportunities, meet with investors and startups, conduct due diligence, and invest in ~2-5 companies.
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.
