This summer the Research and Technology Park hosted the second cohort of Accelerate VI, an immersive startup accelerator for tech-enabled entrepreneurs in the US Virgin Islands. The program was designed to further the development and growth of early-stage technology ventures in the US Virgin Islands and beyond.
As the end of the 2nd cohort nears, the community is invited to register and attend a Virtual Demo Day on July 23, 2020.
The culmination of 12 weeks of tireless work, Demo Day is a two-part public event in which our 7 teams share more about their company’s product or service, vision for the future, and goals with potential investors and the community.
Part 1: Pitching (Shark Tank Style)
The founders from each company in our cohort will be presenting their 7-9 minute pitch via video. All pitches will be pre-recorded and released via email the morning of July 23rd, freeing viewers to watch the videos all at once, or at convenient times throughout the day.
Part 2: Live Q&A
Tune in July 23rd at 6 pm EST to the Live Q&A event via Zoom. Each startup will have 5 minutes to answer questions from an expert panel as well as the audience. This is an opportunity to get to know the founders, garner additional information, and ask outstanding questions about their companies and pitches.
REGISTRATION REQUIRED. To secure a spot, RSVP to receive a calendar invite with the Zoom link for the live Q&A. In addition, the morning of July 23rd, a link will be sent for the Demo Day recordings.
Date: July 23, 2020
Time: Link to pitches will be released at 9am (watch at your convenience). Live Q&A at 6 pm EST.
