Getting Your Demos Right

Feld Thoughts

I get demos every day. I don’t want to hear a description of what you do – I want to see a demo. The demo is iconic and amazing, but it takes too long and is too abstract for their corporate customers buying Oblong’s Mezzanine product. Multiple times a day.

Hunter Walker

” For many accelerators and incubators, demo days kick off a fundraising process for a full round or additional capital based on inbound demand. Sometimes we already know the team but what happens when you’re meeting them for the first time on demo day and want to accelerate towards familiarity? Two main reasons: Evaluate Learning, Not Just Milestones: every demo day presentation – complete with ‘up and to the right’ curve – is marketing.

Start Every Board Meeting With A Demo

Feld Thoughts

Another one of my favorites is to start a board meeting off with a demo. I find three hour “reporting board meetings&# where everyone sits around and goes through a 50 page PowerPoint deck to be tedious. When I first started investing in 1994, this was the norm.

How to Be a Demo God

How to Change the World

Several times a year a group of executives from startups do a six-minute demo of their products to an audience of venture capitalists, analysts, and journalists. This name of the event is, logically, DEMO. This post is for anyone who has to give a good demo, whether at DEMO or anywhere else. Demoing is an essential skill to launch a product, raise capital, make a sale, garner press, and recruit employees, so you must get good at it. This is, after all, a demo.

Demo Day Burnout

Dshen

As summer moves on, we are soon back into demo day season for the fall. But yet as I attend these demo days, I find myself getting kind of bored. We could just collect what everyone has done and then you could just look up the demo day trope that fits best with your presenting style and situation. Of course that would probably just make the whole demo day thing even more unmotivating to attend. What do I mean by bored? They seem so formulaic.
