Each year, UpTech selects up to 10 startups for the six-month Accelerator program, where the curriculum is driven by intensive entrepreneurship education, one-on-one mentoring, up to $50,000 in seed capital and access to best business model development methods, customer acquisition strategies, project management principles and product development practices.
 
The 2017 StartupCincy Demo Day will be hosted at 84.51° on the fifth floor. Doors open at 5:15 p.m. and the demos begin at 6 p.m. A reception showcasing local food vendors and breweries will follow the pitch event, where attendees can network with UpTech companies.
 
This year’s Demo Day features nine data-driven startups from all around the world. Demo Day is their opportunity to share their vision for the future with the public.
