StartOut Demo Day

Thursday, May 11th

Apply to Pitch

Apply today for our annual Demo Day, a pitch event for LGBTQ+ founders. Have you recently launched a product and want to get it in front of investors and other entrepreneurs? This is your opportunity as an innovative LGBTQ+ startup to demonstrate your product, discuss your go-to-market strategy, and pitch for future fundraising rounds in front of a panel of angel investors, venture capitalists, and brands.

Completing this form does not guarantee you/your company a spot to pitch at our 2023 Demo Day digital event. We will select up to 8 LGBTQ+ founded startups with top prizes including $5k for first place, $3k for second place, and $2k for the third place winner.

In order to apply to Demo Day, please fill out – or update – your founder application on StartOut online community portal. Once you submit your founder application, you will be redirected to a dedicated page with additional questions specific to Demo Day.
