Invitation to CRL’s Demo Day – 25 January


We’re excited to announce that the Demo Day for our latest Accelerator cohort will be taking place on Thursday 25 January at U+I’s offices. This will be an opportunity for our latest Accelerator cohort to pitch on the areas they’re looking for help in: support from experts, investment, finding a cofounder etc., as well as an opportunity for the audience to experience pitches from the next generation of super hardware entrepreneurs!

Following our Accelerator launch event in early December – which saw a variety of our entrepreneurs practice their pitches in front of a packed crowd – the Demo Day will see the cohort give their now perfected pitches and display their working prototypes.

The event will include presentations from Carlton Cummins of Aceleron, one of the success stories to have come out of CRL’s Accelerator. Carlton will be sharing highlights from his exciting entrepreneurial journey to date and the advice he would offer presepctive entrepreneurs.
