StartOut Events

Demo Day

Thank you to everyone who attended our 2023 Demo Day where we were introduced to eight extraordinary LGBTQ-led companies and their founders. Their innovative ideas and passion for their work and community are truly inspiring. Through their participation at Demo Day, we witnessed the incredible talent and potential that exists within our community. 

Demo Day is produced thanks to the phenomenal group of volunteers who serve on the Programming Board and staff who helped organize this event, our long-time production partner Outshine Events, and our generous sponsor AWS. 

We hope to see you all back next year to watch 8 exciting new LGBTQ+ founders pitch their ideas.
