Demo Day signified the culmination of the iLab’s Inaugural Summer Accelerator program. Hosted as a part of the Office of Undergraduate Research’s Creative Activities & Research Symposium, the event brought together startup teams from the Accelerator with undergraduate researchers throughout campus.
After a jam-packed 8 weeks of development and preparation, each startup team proudly pitched their product to a panel of judges and industry representatives. These groups of students received constructive feedback on how to better their businesses and were given access to a new resource-filled workspace, where they can carry out their improvements throughout the year. Some of the iLab’s young visionaries were even given offers for funding, testing, and development by the audience of professionals. Demo Day proved to be a major step for our talented innovators.
