As we hold our first MIT Enterprise Forum of the year Boomers, Technology & Health: Consumers Taking Charge on January 19th, the oldest baby boomer will turn 65 that month.
We are very proud to put on our Northwest Startup DEMO twice a year (once in the fall, and another in the spring). One of the drawbacks of our schedule, though, is that there are more innovative companies than spaces to present.
If you are one of those Innovative Companies that is looking for another venue to exposure, consider the Innovation Showcase through the Technology Alliance. You can visit their site at http://www.technology-alliance.com/is/is.html
Drum roll, please! The names of our six fall 2010 DEMO finalists are in!
Our DEMO team has been busy collecting applications these past few weeks, and will be announcing our Fall finalists shortly.
Once again, we are hosting our Fall DEMO event in partnership with six of our regions’s angel organizations, namely Alliance of Angels, Keiretsu Forum, Puget Sound Venture Club, Seraph, Tacoma Angel Network and Zino Society.
This is the very question our MIT Enterprise Forum will explore at the Meydenbauer Center in Bellevue on Wednesday, November 10th! Moderated by Denis Du Bois, CEO of P5 Group, our panel of experts will offer their extensive expertise and experience on the topic:
You have a great idea that you can't stop thinking about. You've probably set up a website and mocked up a prototype. Now, you've even started talking about it to friends, family, fools, whoever. You are an entrepreneur, boldly stepping forward to make the world a better place.
Every time we put on DEMO we always hear the same complaint from the entrepreneurs - why can't I use PowerPoint? I guess this is understandable given that entrepreneurs spend many hours cultivating their pitch decks for investors and want to reuse materials as much as possible. Some entrepreneurs have even gone so far as to create a full presentation in Keynote or even PDF and say "see, we aren't using powerpoint!" They are obviously missing the point.
