Demo Day

Demo day is an event that brings together all Burch incubator startups and a representative of a company of friends and partners of the university in one place. All teams from all the programs that reach MVP stage automatically qualify to pitch at Burch Demo Day in front of the representatives of companies, international organizations, state institutions and try to get support for their startups.

Through this event, we all want to recognize the potential of young people and the importance of investing in them, to jointly create new jobs, solutions for the market and influence the economy of our country.
