SAN DIEGO, CA–(Tech Cocktail, March 28, 2015) – Last night EvoNexus held their third ever Demo Day to celebrate the ideas, companies, and entrepreneurs who have gone through a rigorous program during their initial four months at the incubator. While it’s the third Demo Day they’ve held, this marks the first time EvoNexus has had the event at UCSD’s Rady School of Management: a truly grand forum for celebration.
During their time in EvoNexus the focus for the companies presenting has been to create a minimum sellable product, validate their market, and provide their business model to customers. In total there were 16 companies who took the stage to present, most of which were either part of the EvoStart or EvoLaunch programs.
All said, the event was oversold by about 200 people, and the auditorium was packed to the gills with people. There were also 60 investors in the crowd looking for new companies to invest in as well as a corporate presence from some of San Diego’s big name companies like Qualcomm.
This is a shining example of the impact EvoNexus has on the San Diego tech ecosystem: they successfully united the corporate, startup, and local communities together to celebrate innovation and entrepreneurship. And yours truly had a front row, VIP seat to catch all the action.
