In just the past ﬁve years, DEMO companies have raised well over $4.5 billion dollars in the months/years following their debut at DEMO. More than 50 companies have been acquired by tech giants, such as Adobe, Cisco, Google, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, Symantec, Viacom, Yahoo!, and more
The feel you get when you enter DEMO is unlike any other conference. Each company is given just six minutes on the DEMO stage to truly demonstrate how their product will change the world. No PowerPoint or ﬂashy corporate presentations allowed. Just the founders and the technologies many are staking their careers on. It doesn’t get any more straightforward and fast paced than that.
While the DEMO stage is the place to witness each technology as it is unveiled, the DEMO Pavilion is where the real action is. It’s a perfect environment to network, research, form meaningful and strategic relationships, and—yes—even close some deals. Here, investors and potential partners can get a close up look at the latest trend-setting technologies. It’s not just a place for more face time, but for more eyes on-the-product time.
Opportunities abound to connect and interact with the DEMO audience on a more informal level throughout the show. Each DEMO is packed with networking events to help facilitate audience interactivity – including cocktail receptions; private dinners for demonstrators and Dealmakers; a rockin’ late night soiree and a special awards program.
