Announcing Black Founders Demo Day Pitch Competition in Jacksonville

July 26th, 2022 | 5PM – 8PM | WJCT Soundstage 100 Festival Park Ave, Jacksonville, FL 32202

Black and Brown Founders from across the country are invited to present at the inaugural Black Founders Demo Day – a two-day celebration designed to showcase, inspire, and invest in Black and Brown wealth creation. The event has rallied support from nationally recognized brands and business leaders in tech, venture, and entertainment. Black Founders Demo Day will take place in Miami on December 1. All presenting companies receive a $3k travel stipend in addition to over $1M in investment opportunities from prominent venture capital and angel investors.

In addition, Plain Sight has partnered with Florida Startup Ecosystem leaders to host regional events leading up to Black Founders Demo Day. In partnership with Florida Funders, PS27 Ventures, and Embarc Collective, all Florida-based companies that meet the criteria for the competition will have the ability to compete for prizes at two regional pitch competitions on July 26 in Tampa and Jacksonville. 

The winning companies of both pitch competitions will be guaranteed a spot to present at Black Founders Demo Day and Venture Atlanta, as well as in-kind prizes from event partners. To learn more and apply, go to www.blackfoundersdemoday.com
