Northeastern University hosts this event as part of Global Entrepreneurship Week. From their website:
"Demo Day is the unveiling of multiple startups that have gone through a rigorous seven-week lean developmental program. After being exposed to speakers, coaches and lessons throughout five “bootcamps”, these teams will finally be able to present their ventures to a panel of judges and the local community.
Each venture is competing for the chance to win cash prizes to help further their progress. During their 2 minute pitch on stage, they will be judged according to many guidelines including the viability of their venture and the progress they have made through the course of the semester. Looking forward to having you check out the revolutionary ventures yourself and cast your vote for Audience Favorite.
On top of at all, Katie Rae, Co-Founder and Chairman of Startup Institute, Chairman of TechStars Boston and Founder of Project 11 will be providing the keynote address!
So come join us at the Fall 2015 Husky Startup Challenge Demo Day: A celebration of Northeastern University student innovation. You can help us decide which teams will walk away with their share of $5,000 in prize money!"
