“A Celebration of Northeastern Student Entrepreneurship”

Demo Day is the culmination of a series of ideation sessions and bootcamps positioned to jump start any student’s concept into a company. Ventures pitch to an audience of their peers, faculty members, investors and industry professionals and is comprised of two parts.

1) Tabling: students set up a table with information about their companies and talk with attendees about their product and the work they did throughout the semester.

2) Pitching: students then complete a 2 minute pitch in front of 300+ attendees.
