Be part of this premier gathering of universities, startups, and investors

The USDD presents an unprecedented opportunity for corporate open innovation and venturing groups, Startup Development Officers, VCs, and angels to discover, review, develop, partner with, and fund university startups. Every six months, the University Startups Demo Day engages with over 100 universities to accept 200 of their best university startups to be scored by a Corporate Selection Committee consisting of Fortune 500 companies. These double-curated startups by academia and industry represent the very top startups coming out of American universities that are industry aligned. The University Startups Demo Day is in addition to our innovative "University IP Into University Startups" program, where we provide Fortune 500 companies an effective way to identify university technologies that correspond to business unit needs that can be commercialized by entrepreneurs through startups.
