18 entrepreneurs. 9 world-changing solutions. And the best part: 2 virtual Demo Days where you can meet them.
After a summer of learning, growth, and wayyy too many hours on Zoom during our Accelerator, these entrepreneurs are ready to begin chapter 2 of their impact journey at Demo Day 2020. The event will feature pitches from each tech nonprofit, and the opportunity to meet the entrepreneurs (thanks, technology!). Let’s face it: we could all use a little boost of inspiration. At Demo Day, we promise inspiration aplenty.
Join us at Fast Forward’s Demo Day on Wednesday, 9/16 at 4pm PT (7pm ET) or Thursday, 9/17 at noon PT (3pm ET). Same content across both days.
At Demo Day, the nine nonprofits in the 2020 cohort will share the transformative tech products they’re building to advance racial justice, health equity, education, and more. Think: a platform using AI to surface insights into generic drugs that have the potential to affordably treat cancer. An augmented reality tool writing Black, brown, women, and LGBTQIA+ narratives into American curricula. Yep, they’re that innovative. You can learn more about the cohort in the Demo Day 2020 Digital Guide.
For these entrepreneurs, Demo Day is the culmination of 12 weeks of learning from mentors and fellow founders, defining their impact and strategy, and honing their storytelling skills. While they experienced the same impact-scaling content as Accelerators past, this year looked a bit different. Though they called in from cities around the globe, from Zoom magic shows to virtual cheers-ing, the S20 cohort built lasting community behind their screens. It was an experience to remember.
Special thanks to our partners for making the 2020 Accelerator and Demo Days possible. From bringing in exemplary mentors, to guiding the organizations on product strategy, to making connections for the entrepreneurs, we couldn’t have done this without you.
