Transilvania Demo Day is a way through which we put creative teams, small medium enterprises, research departments and creative spin-offs from local companies in the spotlight.
We designed the concept of Transilvania Demo Day after we understood the need of the creative and innovative community in Cluj-Napoca to have a dedicated event where they can have access to exposure, publicity and recognition. There are more and more businesses that could have a faster and higher growth, if only more people knew about them and what they were doing, so we are making this happen.
During the event, innovative tech projects in tech are being presented and are making demonstrations of their products. These presentations are analysed by the audience and also the mentors panel can give feedback on them.
An important component of the audience is represented by business owners and investors who are interested to engage in this type of projects. They are willing to invest in the projects and teams, if convinced by the pragmatic novelty of the presentations.
Each team has 3 minutes to give a short talk and a demo of their products, in order to get valuable feedback – as well as some tough questions – from the audience, who is made up of experienced entrepreneurs, potential customers and investors, and media representatives.
With this approach, Transilvania Demo Day is opening doors for the entrepreneurs, help them connect with a network of people who are interested in what they’re doing and give them insight into possible ways to improve their business or product. And, of course, for the audience, it’s a great learning experience, and a great way to spark new ideas!
The event is open to: entrepreneurs, investors, creators, the media, and anyone interested in new and innovative things.
The presentations are followed by a comprehensive interaction and networking activity, a perfect context for the founders and investors, companies and public authorities to connect andfurther develop the innovative community of Transylvania.
The event is part of the Cluj Innovation Days.
Being supported by the ClujIT Cluster and Cluj-Napoca City Hall, Transilvania Demo Day is an event powered by ClujHUB.
