Demo Day is about 40 days away and time is moving quickly! The teams are working 7 days a week to make sure their product is perfect, they achieve high levels of traction, launch successful Kickstarters and/or get lots of valuable press coverage before the big day. Let’s just say they have very high mountains to climb but they’re getting there!
Tickets for Demo Day are going fast! General Admission is already half full. Make sure you get yours before we run out! You don’t want to miss your chance to watch the pitches from our best cohort yet and to mingle with the entire Montreal startup community.
It is hard to believe the time has flown by so quickly, but we are already halfway through the Fall 2014 program and the pressure to deliver is building up! With Demo Day just 49 days away, now is officially crunch time for the teams. The teams are in full stress mode and the pressure is on as they have just a short amount of time to push out their MVP, achieve high levels of traction, and attempt to get some valuable press coverage before the big day. With a lot to accomplish in a short time, now is the time they’ll be applying everything that they’ve gained from the FounderFuel program in a big push towards Demo Day.
We’re all feeling the pressure and getting really excited about Demo Day. Have you got your ticket yet? If not, do so here. You don’t want to miss your chance to watch the pitches from our strongest cohort yet and to mingle with the entire Montreal startup community!
While it seems like the cohort just began, the FounderFuel Fall 2014 “season finale” is just around the corner, and get ready for this – tickets go on sale tomorrow! Whether you’re a founder, a techy, a VC, an Angel, or you’re just looking to take part in an exciting event, this is your chance to discover unique investment opportunities and mingle with like-minded people. This is one of our strongest FounderFuel cohorts yet, and we can’t wait to introduce you to the gang. Be sure to check back tomorrow and buy your tickets right away because they’ll sell out faster than Beyoncé’s next tour.
Today the teams got their first “graduation” present from us. During the filming of our official Spring 2014 Cohort video we surprised everyone with FounderFuel hoodies. They teams were super excited. But at the same time, it hammered in just how soon Demo Day is!!
Vanhawks launched the Kickstarter campaign for their Vanhawks Valour bike last Thursday at 1pm EST. In less than 36 hours they managed to hit 100% of their goal and this afternoon they surpassed 200% of their goal! We’re excited the Kickstarter exploded, especially this quick!
Because the campaign has been moving so quickly they’ve opened up some stretch goals if higher targets are met.
250K – New rim colours 400K – Disc brakes 750K – Carbon belt drive
We’re so proud to have this company as part of our Spring 2014 cohort and can’t wait until Demo Day when they can show the world what’s coming next!
