Polsky Accelerator Demo Day
The Polsky Accelerator, launched in June 2012, gives student teams the opportunity to work intensively and solely on their businesses and social enterprises in a collaborative and dynamic environment over the summer.
This year, Demo Day will begin with a showcase, styled like a typical science fair-type event, so that judges and attendees can walk around and talk with each company freely. After the showcase, each team will give a short five-minute pitch to the full Demo Day audience, comprised of Chicago-area investors and entrepreneurs, media from various outlets and UChicago students, faculty and staff.
Following the presentations, there will be a networking reception for all teams, judges, and attendees to mix and mingle with food and drinks.
