Entrepreneurs to step into virtual spotlight at Demo Day
BCP Tech Accelerator cohort prepares for virtual stage on Oct. 1
Six entrepreneurs from across the country will step into the virtual Kansas City spotlight on Thursday, Oct. 1 with the inaugural bcp tech Accelerator Demo Day.
bcp tech – the technology-focused brand of Brush Creek Partners, an insurance agency based in the Crossroads Arts District – has extended an open invitation for the exclusive event that will showcase six InsurTech companies who have participated in the first bcp tech Accelerator since July.
“Despite the challenges of COVID-19, bcp tech attracted an incredible group of founders and products, all with broker-focused InsurTech solutions,” said Travis Holt, CEO and co-founder. “Each member of the cohort brings a unique insurance technology solution designed to help the independent broker improve the client experience.”
Those solutions will be streamed live on Demo Day from 3:30-4:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 1. Click here to reserve your place at this virtual event. bcp tech will send registered guests a link to Demo Day on the day before and on Oct. 1.
“Demo Day is the culmination of our 2-month accelerator program, where we were hyper-focused on helping these companies grow revenue, in addition to providing access to capital markets, education and expert mentoring,” Holt said. “We did this by curating connections with multiple insurance agencies who heard their pitches and provided feedback.”
The bcp tech accelerator experience was designed to give the entrepreneurs tools necessary to turn their products into rapidly growing businesses. Holt expressed his appreciation to TechAssure and LaunchKC for their contributions to the eight-week intensive curriculum.
