What is a demo night?

Demo night is an opportunity to showcase emerging entrepreneurs and novel products which were developed right here in Minnesota, especially in our women-led companies and startups. Each business with use six minutes to tell their story, explain the unique solution their product provides, and demonstrate how their product works. Presenting companies will also field a few questions from the audience. At the end of the program, these women-led businesses can interact and network even more with the audience at their own tables around the venue.


Who should apply to present?

Any woman-led business that has an innovative product, is solving a real problem, and has a product that would make an engaging live demonstration should apply. The product does not have to be “live” or on the market. It just must work by March 22nd. The product can be web-based. Businesses in all types of industry are encouraged to apply.

Applications will close on March 1st.


Who should attend?

Everyone! This is not just an event for women. It’s an event for all entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, business owners, students, and interested members of the community. Tickets are on sale now.
