The Mother Of All Demos

Feld Thoughts

I was talking to a friend last week about demos. She mentioned the Steve Jobs iPhone demo from 2007 and I referred to Doug Engelbart’s Mother of All Demos from 1968.

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.

This approach is equally useful for demos, but it is so often overlooked. The post Getting Your Demos Right appeared first on Feld Thoughts. Product demo makerbot mezzanine oblong Sales

Similarly, picking seed investors for your first startup in and around the craziness of an accelerator demo day can be just as scarring over the long term.
