(March 30, 2015, xconomy.com) – After 16 EvoNexus startups made short presentations at a Demo Day in San Diego last week, the big news was perhaps not that the audience voted Sonic VR as “champion,” or that CEO Jason Riggs left afterward for an EvoNexus-hosted dinner with a dozen investors.
What was arguably more impressive is how EvoNexus is becoming a rally point for the tech community in San Diego, which was evident in the size of the crowd that came to hear the startups pitch their plans Thursday evening. The event just keeps growing. For its third Demo Day, EvoNexus moved the event from its downtown office to a 295-seat auditorium at UC San Diego’s Rady School of Management. It sold out days in advance, and still there was standing room only.
