Demo Day is always a celebration! This cohort we will be celebrating the student teams and their 8-10 weeks of hard work within the Blast Furnace, Pitt’s student accelerator. The students will pitch on stage and demo their ideas to an audience of VIPs from Pittsburgh’s startup scene.
Investors, partners, future applicants, students, staff, faculty, and anyone with an interest in entrepreneurship are encouraged to attend Demo Day and meet the cohort to experience the energy and breadth of ideas put forward by Pitt students.
