Techstars Demo Day is a result of a startup accelerator program with support from Equinor, Capgemini, and Techstars. The program seeks world-leading startups that are developing cutting-edge technology and they get help from mentors and experts to drive the energy transition.
Demo Day at the Equinor & Techstars Energy Accelerator is an event where the startups that have participated in the accelerator program get to showcase their businesses and their innovative energy solutions to potential investors, industry experts, and the broader energy community.
During Demo Day, each startup typically gives a short presentation or pitch about their business and their energy solution, highlighting the market opportunity, the technology or service they are offering, the team, and their traction. The presentations are usually followed by a networking session, where attendees can meet the founders, ask questions, and discuss potential investment or partnership opportunities.
Demo Day is an important milestone for startups, as it provides them with a platform to gain visibility, validate their businesses, and attract potential investors or customers. For investors and other stakeholders, Demo Day is an opportunity to discover promising startups, connect with founders and industry peers, and potentially invest in or partner with high-growth companies working in the energy sector.
