The DEMO Tour is on a roll. Following our stops in Chicago and Austin at the end of this month, we will be heading to Boston on February 4th. Highland Capital will be hosting the tour. Any company working on a new enterprise product solving a big problem can apply
DEMO Enterprise is right around the corner in April, and so we are hitting the road to find out what enterprise founders are working on. We give founders some honest feedback on their products, and founders get to pitch us and some partners at Highland in an informal, but confidential setting. A spot on the Tour automatically enters startups for consideration to DEMO Enterprise in San Francisco on April 3, 2014. The DEMO Tour is our way of engaging with the startup community in between DEMO events, but it is also one of the main ways we find our finalists for DEMO.
We define enterprise broadly to include any company selling to a business instead of directly to a consumer. But some areas of particular interest include SaaS/cloud services moving into new industries, mobile enterprise, big data, 3D printing, drones , robotics, and bitcoin.
