In essence, the Demo Showcase is quite self-explanatory. Selected companies from nine different industries demoing their products and services. Last week, the Slush Startup team went through almost 1,000 great applications for the Demo Showcase and chose the 54 most potential companies to invite on stage. Therefore, it is no surprise that we have some truly amazing companies coming to demo on stage at Slush, and we can’t wait for you to see them. The different industries we will be seeing demos from are the following:
- AI & ML
- Food & Biotech
- Greentech and Energy
- Health and Medtech
- Consumer products
This is the opportunity of the year to come and see the demos from the top companies in the industry that you’re most interested in. The Demo Showcase is also an excellent learning opportunity to see your next portfolio company or partner on stage.
Now, who’s excited to see the companies that will be on stage? I’m super excited to finally announce all the superb companies we will have on stage. Take a look at our Agenda. You can find my five top picks below – be sure not to miss their demos!
