Description

LaunchX Clubs New England Regional Demo Day is an event hosted by teen entrepreneurs, for teen entrepreneurs.

Demo Day is a event to celebrate the progress of high school startup founders, while providing these entrepreneurs with support to continue to grow their businesses. Students in the LaunchX Clubs program have been building their companies since September, conducting market research, prototyping, seeking feedback, iterating, selling, and building their business operations. Demo Day is an opportunity for these innovative, out-of-the-box thinkers to come together from across the midwest to showcase their progress and build connections with like-minded entrepreneurs. We are excited to welcome teams from around the region who will present their ventures within our year's theme of environmental sustainability to a group of experienced professionals from the local business and entrepreneurship ecosystem.

FAQ:

  • Do I register as a school, team, or individual? You register as a TEAM. If you are an active LaunchX member (you have been working with your team and actively participating in our program for the 17-18 school year), you will sign up as an Official LaunchX Team. Please designate one member of your team to submit the form for your team. You need to sign up PER TEAM not per school. Please indicate the names and e-mail addresses of each team member attending when signing up.

  • How can my team prepare? Let your mentor/faculty adviser know that you are attending and the date of your event, that way you can work together in being prepared to pitch in front of the board of advisers. If you have any other questions about the regional or finalist event, check out this blog post.

  • How long will each team have? Teams will have up to 5 minutes to pitch (the same amount of time as their pitch submission on the platform) plus 3 minutes of Q&A from judges

  • Can guests attend? Yes, absolutely! If you are an educator, parent, brother/sister, boyfriend/girlfriend/best friend and are planning on attending the event, please sign up for a general admissions ticket. We encourage you to invite all of your friends and family members, audience support is encouaged and fun quizzes/games will be played during intermissions.

  • By when do we need to register? Registrations are suggested by January 31 so that we may plan enough support for each regional hub. Official LaunchX team registration is required at least 2 weeks prior to the event, so that we may ensure proper logistical support of participating teams. No exceptions.
