We’re excited to invite you to Venture University’s Cohort 35 REVERSE DEMO DAY!What’s a REVERSE DEMO DAY? Glad you asked!

Venture University is an investor accelerator (vs. a startup accelerator), so rather than having startups pitch at DEMO DAY, we have the investors within the cohort pitch the companies they selected to invest in and explain why they chose to invest.

Cohort 35 has formed 6 investment teams: Consumer, Enterprise, Fintech, Frontier, Healthcare, & PropTech. Over the last ~3 months they have sourced and reviewed ~4K companies, met with a large number of investors and startups, conducted deep due diligence, and narrowed down to the top companies they are investing in (a ~0.1% selectivity, ~10x more selective than an average venture fund).

At REVERSE DEMO DAY VU’s investment team will share their key findings and insights from their due diligence for why they got excited about the market, the team, the solution and strategy, and some of the key traction metrics that made them say “yes” to invest.
