Event Details

Come see what all the excitement is about!

There were over 900 companies that applied to Techstars Chicago this year. We have put this cohort through our 90 day "boot camp for startups" and they will be presenting to investors at Demo Day on August 28th at the House of Blues.  That is an invitation only event for investors, so we decided to do an encore that is open to the public.

In the past 3 years, startups from Excelerate Labs (before we joined forces with Techstars) have raised over $35 million and have been covered in top publications like Fast Company, Inc, TechCrunch and GigaOM. So what is Demo Day all about, and what do these impressive pitches look like?  Come see the company presentations for yourself!

Community Demo Day will be an opportunity for the community to meet the Techstars companies, hear what they have been working on all summer and see what a Techstars pitch looks like. Food and beverages will be served.


The schedule is:

  • 5:45-6:30pm: Check-in
  • 6:30-8:30pm: Techstars Teams Pitch
  • 8:30-9:30pm: Networking

Thanks for all of the support, we look forward to seeing you on Sept 9th!

Techstars + SVB

Techstars is a global ecosystem that helps entrepreneurs build great businesses. Led by Logan LaHive and Dan Willoughby, the heavily mentorship-based program brought the best of Excelerate Labs, launched in 2010, to the national platform of Techstars in 2013. Excelerate was founded by Troy Henikoff (SurePayroll) and Sam Yagan (, OKCupid, Sparknotes), both who remain onboard as invaluable mentors to the program.

The program selects ten companies each summer to participate in the three-month program in which they build connections and accelerate their business. The program culminates in Demo Day at the end of the program with the companies showcasing their progress and plans to more than 500 angel and venture investors from around the country.
