The BetaBlox Demo Day

BetaBlox is like a gym for entrepreneurs – except instead of dumbbells and treadmills, we have 1-on-1 coaching, mentor lectures, classes, office space, access to investors, and more. At the end of their program, our entrepreneurs are awarded a spot at Demo Day, where they get to showcase their businesses to the city. It’s kinda like Shark Tank, but YOU get to be the shark. We’ll start off with presentations from our startups, weave in some educational/motivational speeches and panels, and then culminate with expo-style networking where you get to meet HUNDREDS of other like-minded individuals, including our team. There will be food, there will be booze, and everything is free. RSVP below, for free, TODAY!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does this cost?

This event is 100% free. While you’re there, you’re going to learn about our startups. And our program. Which means you might be able to help one of our teams answer a tough problem they’re trying to solve, or follow them on social media, or provide high quality feedback to their products. To an early stage company, this is as good as cash. Or you might find interest in our program, apply, and join our family! Point is, there is no catch. There is no cost. And this is not a fundraiser. 

Why are there different cities?

BetaBlox has been around for almost ten years. We’ve grown rapidly in that time and thus needed to spread our wings and open up shop in other cities. So please be careful to RSVP for the city that you actually live in, and on the date you can actually attend.

Why are there three sessions to choose from?

This makes it possible to account for demand. It’s the same exact show, on back-to-back nights, but with different audiences. This is also convenient for you because you have more dates to choose from.

What should I wear?

Please wear whatever makes you comfortable. Yes, there will be fancy people there, wearing fancy things. And that’s okay because it’s THEIR style. But quite honestly, our BetaBlox culture doesn’t care what you wear as long as you’re phenomenal at your job. Even our presenting teams will be wearing a range of things; some might be in suits, others in hoodies. 

What kind of people should attend?

The simple answer to this is anyone that is interested in entrepreneurship. Another answer might be anyone that wants to support their local economy.

Hundreds will be in attendance, so it’s not a super exclusive event. While at the same time, many very important people in the startup landscape will be there.

You might be one of those people that never goes to networking events, or doesn’t hang out in the “startup community”; or you might be one of those people that goes to as many events as you can. Either way, great!

What is the format of the night?

5PM: It starts with a little happy hour-esq expo.

6PM: We’ll then be introduced to the program and the event by one of our investors.

We’ll then start parading our startups on stage, one at a time, for three minutes a piece. They’ll each pitch, kinda like they would on Shark Tank.

We’ll break about halfway through the presentations to do a Q&A panel with regional investors/entrepreneurs/alumni. This session is meant to be educational.

7:30PM: When the presentations are finished, each startup will be assigned a booth. You will have the opportunity to walk around and meet the people you enjoyed hearing from. They’ll be showing off their products and answering questions.

Why do I need to RSVP and provide contact information?

Over the last decade, we’ve averaged 1,000 attendees at our Demo Days. Our record is 1,600 guests (we’ll never do that again…😂)

This year, we’re only allowing several hundred people, per city. We need your reservation so we know when to close RSVPs for that session. WE WILL HIT THE LIMIT and fire code prevents us from going beyond it. If you don’t RSVP, you will not get in.

We do not use your contact information for any reason other than:

  1. We email everyone a copy of the invitation with more information on the event.
  2. We text message you a copy of your ticket a couple days before the event. This way you can just flash said text message to the greeter and walk right in. As a backup we’ll have your contact info on a list and can look it up manually.
Can I bring a friend or date?

Heck yes! Just please RSVP on their behalf, or have them do it – for head count purposes. If you do it on their behalf, please tell them what you just signed them up for so they’ll know why they’re being sent an email and a text messaged ticket.
