The BetaBlox Demo Day is your opportunity to network with a sea of entrepreneurs, startups, investors, bankers, government officials, service providers, and other professional stakeholders around Kansas City. More than 1,000 participants are expected for this high-powered evening. Admission is free, but an RSVP is necessary to attend.
BetaBlox is a close collaborator with LaunchKC, the national tech startup grants competition and a civic engine in the Kansas City tech scene. Drew Solomon, a member of the LaunchKC leadership team of staff leaders from the Downtown Council and the Economic Development Corporation, will introduce LaunchKC to the BetaBlox audience during the 6 p.m. portion of the program.
“BetaBlox is an exclusive school for startups,” said Wes Bergmann, the lead investor in BetaBlox. “Every year, we pick the best-of-the-best and then put them through a rigorous curriculum of classes, one-on-one consultation, and mentorship designed to give them a higher likelihood of survival. At the end of the program they pitch their startups for three minutes each to a room full of interested people – we call this “Demo Day.”
