Pava Marie LaPere Center for Entrepreneurship

Join our Fall 2022 Fuel cohort as they answer questions from our judges’ panel for the chance to take home a slice of the $20K prize pool!

Join us IN PERSON at FastForward U on Friday, December 2 at 5:30 pm

Each of our nine accelerator teams have been hard at work over the fall semester, adding some Fuel to their fire in order to move their ventures forward.

At Demo Day, each team will be presenting their pitch and then answering Q&A from our judges panel afterwards. After all the pitches and Q&A, the judges will deliberate to decide which ventures take home a slice of our $20,000 non-dilutive prize pool.

Presenting ventures include:

  • Dialect: a marketplace for programming help.
  • Haven Cloud: the world’s most secure and private cloud storage platform.
  • Quest 2 Learn: an app with exciting technology, using augmented reality and game design to teach courses in the lab sciences.
  • MedSetGo: a cloud-based platform to seamlessly aggregate countless medical service offerings into a simple, easy to use platform.
  • Tastee Tape: edible tape!
  • ThermOptik: developers of QuikClear, a device that uses dynamic temperature control for cataract surgery to increase provider efficiency.
  • Drul: building a hardware device that uses saliva to track and monitor oral health.
  • Sequoia: slowing cognitive decline in older adults by directly enhancing their deep sleep.
  • Curve Assure: a novel device for dynamic pre-operative patient data collection, providing surgeons and custom-device manufacturers with the data necessary for true precision medicine.

Demo Day Judges:

  • Margaret Roth Falzon, VC + COO at Squadra Ventures
  • Zac Fox, senior professional marketer at Under Armour
  • + More announced soon!

Additionally, there will be an opportunity to vote on your favorite venture as a crowd choice favorite! The team with the most votes will receive an extra $3,000 for their venture.

Feel free to invite friends and colleagues you think might be interested to the event! We cannot wait to show you what these teams have been up to this semester.
