500Startups Demo Days: Behind the Scenes


After a long summer of hard work and anticipation, 500Startups presents… DEMO DAYS! Yes, that’s right, last week, it was finally time for the 24 fabulous startups in the summer accelerator program (and a few in the seed fund) to present their pitches to investors and to the press. TK, Toutapp‘s founder, went first on the first day, and his Toutapp pitch was on point.

There are a bunch of pictures on our Facebook page, but we thought we’d include a few more here!

We want to send a special thank you to everyone who watched the Demo Days livestream, and a shout-out to those who were watching in other countries! We’ve started to see a lot of users in Latin America in particular, which is really exciting. Of course, lots of love to our batch-mates and the entire 500Startups team. It’s been an awesome summer.

A beautiful, sunny, California day!

… just a little pre-show mingling!
