The Benefits of Having a Demo Table at the Founder Showcase

Posted by Joe Garza on 2014-05-09

The Founder Showcase is almost here, but there are still a few more Demo Tables available. For those of you who are on the fence about whether you should get a table or not, keep reading.

Already planning to get a Demo Table? Click here for more details.

Snagging a Demo Table is an affordable way for Founders and Service Providers to display their products and get ample exposure at the Founder Showcase. Located within close proximity to the food and drinks area, each table comes with plenty of surrounding space for a company sign or kiosk, and has access to both high speed internet and power. And don't forget about the food and drinks.

Wan't to win a free demo table?  Simply RSVP for the event on Facebook here, and on Friday, May 9th, at 5pm PDT, we will randomly select a winner to get a free table, announcing it on the FB event page!

All Demo Table companies have the opportunity to participate in the Demo Table Competition, in which the audience will vote for their favorite company. The winner of the “Audience Choice Award” will get to pitch for three minutes onstage in front of hundreds of investors and members of the press, and receive feedback from a panel of experts.

The winner of last year’s “Audience Choice Award”, Camperoo, experienced considerable success following their win at the 14th Founder Showcase, having been featured on numerous media channels such as Forbes, SFGate, and TechCrunch. Even more impressive, Camperoo’s was accepted into Y Combinator, and recently completed the program.
