11 May Sara Ahmadian to Pitch at White House Demo Day
We are proud to announce that Seamless Planet, a FounderFuel accelerated, Canadian, and female founded startup, will be taking part in the first ever White House Demo Day.
The White House Demo Day is one step that the Administration is taking to empower entrepreneurs from “every corner of America” to create and grow successful businesses.
Unlike traditional Demo Days, involving a pitch of ones business to a roomful of investors and community members, this Demo Day will showcase the diversity of entrepreneurs and their ideas. With the focus being on inclusive entrepreneurship, this event will push to empower founders from all walks of life, including “those underrepresented in entrepreneurship like women and people of color.”
Seamless Planet is a global distribution and channel management system for experiences and activities. Co-founders Sara Ahmadian and Ramin Hazegh took part in the FounderFuel program during the Fall of 2014. They have also pitched at Google for Entrepreneurs Demo Day, securing $100, 000 from Steve Case, chairman and CEO of Revolution and co-founder of AOL.
President Barack Obama will be in attendance, as well as Shark Tanks’ Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, and more.
