I enjoy DemoDays. Founders get five minutes to present to 50 (or over 100!) people the startups they dedicate every waking hour to building. It’s not the full picture of who they are, or the potential of the startup, but it’s fun, and a great way to get people together.
No one does it better in Peru than UTEC Ventures. The Demo Day for batch 6 is today, January 31st. Jose Deustua and his energetic team put on a good show with great startups. After the pitches, participants can stay and meet the teams. Here is a video of last year’s event.
The UTEC Ventures alumni demonstrates the quality of the program. Joinnus and Mesa247 are a couple of the UV startups that have achieved solid traction and attracted investment post-acceleration. At Angel Ventures, we have invested in two UV alumni: Fitco and Riqra. We expect to invest in more.
UTEC Ventures is a proven breeding ground, not just for great founders, but also for startup talent. Whether you are a current founder, potential investor, or looking to get plugged into the startup community, the UTEC Ventures Demo Day is a great place to start.
It’s still not too late to register: UV DemoDay 6G.
I hope to see you there.
