A Demo Day Story – Incruit

 

As a startup in any Accelerator, Demo Day is the most important day. With only 8 days left before our startups get the chance to pitch their ideas, we thought we would ask startups from our previous batches about their experience and feelings about their own Demo Days. Today, we share with you Johan Åkesson and Incruits story.

“Our plan was straightforward. We want to have a simple storytelling for the presentation, basically to explain the purpose and what the specific problem we turn to solve.

For us, it was important to have the whole team on Demo Day to introduce ourselves and have time to talk to as many people as possible inside and outside the pitch limits. The main objective was to have fun, but Demo Day is a great chance to present the company to many interesting and important people.

It was I who pitched and of course I was extremely nervous to talk in front of about 200 people. What i tried to focus on was that it was just me and my team members who knew about the info I had planned to share. If I said anything wrong or missed something; it didn’t matter, because it was only me who would know it. This is something that might be useful to other people, so basically you can just carry on!  

The one important thing we worked on the day before were our business cards (but you should do that earlier). Just put down the logo and an email address and after the pitch you just start handing them out. Remember to be as social as you can due to the short amount of time you have with the people who are there. This is an extremely great opportunity to meet people and give them a chance to discover both you and your company.

But the most important thing is to have fun!”
