Demo Day is coming up, here’s what you should know

If the 3rd of May wasn’t already marked in your calendar, now is the time to get a red pen and do so. That’s when some of the most promising startups in the country will present themselves to the world, at startup Demo Day. For this edition, the biggest startup event of the year is part of the brand-new and& summit & festival in the city-centre of Leuven.

Shining on the Startup Demo Day stage in the Stadsschouwburg, will be 20 of the most promising startups in the country. With a powerful pitch of 3 minutes, these selected startups will try to blow the audience – a mix of successful entrepreneurs, business leaders and investors – off their feet. In customised booths, even more startups will be introducing their innovative ideas to the Demo Day visitors.


Who will win the Start it @KBC - Bolero Crowdfunding Award?

In between these pitches, 3 inspiring entrepreneurs will take the mic for a rocking keynote speech: Polar explorer Dixie Dansercoer, tech expert Omar Mohout and Showpad founder Pieterjan Bouten will all share their entrepreneurial stories. At the end of the night, one startup will be crowned the winner of the Start it @KBC - Bolero Crowdfunding Award 2018. In total, a price pool worth 50.000 euros will be divided amongst the startups.

The and& festival is a four-day innovation extravaganza, where creativity, health and tech are mixed in order to create a better world for tomorrow. More than 100 speakers from all over the globe will be present.
