SkyDeck Fall 2016 Demo Day: Planning Trajectories

SkyDeck Fall 2016 Demo Day: Planning Trajectories

SkyDeck hosted its fourth biannual Demo Day on Thursday, November 10th.
With over 100 investors, 40 friends (Industry Partners, Advisory Board Members, and Campus Partners), and 20 presenting teams, it was by all accounts our best ever.

A big thank you to SkyAdvisors Michael Berolzheimer of Bee Partners and Kim Polese of CrowdSmart who opened the event with excellent insights on the future of startup innovation. Crowdsmart also provided SkyDeck with the use of their platform to allow investors to give feedback to presenting SkyTeams. Another huge thank you to our SkyAdvisor thank you to Advisor Leigh Teece for donating the wine from her family’s winery, Mt. Beautiful Winery in New Zealand!

The support of Bee Partners and Crowdsmart, along with that of all of our SkyAdvisors and Industry Partners, serves as the backbone of our program and we are grateful for their involvement.

In response to the event, SkyTeam Kokko Co-Founder Scott Trappe said, “Caroline Winnett and the team at SkyDeck gave each of us a chance to shine. It would [otherwise] take months and months for us to get in front of 100 investors.”

The next cohort of SkyTeams will on-board in December and the next Demo Day will be in May. We can’t wait to see where our next cohort takes their moonshots!
