Five projects from the Neo ecosystem will participate in the upcoming Draper University Demo Day. The projects were among the top ranked in the recently concluded Draper University program, and include Blockchain Cuties Universe, Rentfuse, Greenfinch, Sunday Games, and Calamus Finance. The hour-long webinar event begins at 7:00 p.m. (UTC) on Wednesday, Oct. 26, and advanced registration is required.
The Demo Day is the culmination of a five-week blockchain entrepreneurship program that provided select Neo ecosystem projects with direct access to startup mentors. The projects will pitch their projects live on Stonks.com, which is backed by the venture capital firm a16z. Stonks.com is a crowdfunding platform for Demo Days, where angel investors and VCs can listen to pitches and potentially invest in very early-stage startups.
