Demo Day

The first Fledge session from Barcelona, Catalonia.  Seven fledglings from Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda, and India told their stories on-stage at the Grand Marina Hotel on December 14th.

Back in Lima, Peru, five Peruvian startups, and one each from: Nicaragua, Nigeria, Rwanda, and the United States: big open data analysis, delivery for small businesses, renewable energy, honey, livestock, mechanizing Africa agriculture with drones.

This is far more than a typical startup pitch event. It is an inspirational evening showcasing the stories of nine mission-driven for-profit companies, why they do what they do, and why their work is important to you, your family, and the world.

Back in Seattle, two American startups and four from Africa: putting an end to rust, making childcare affordable, turning waste oil into value, bringing toilets to people pooping in the streets, exporting produce from Africa to Europe, and a 21st Century media company telling these stories and more.

After five years and eight demo days, there are over eight hours of videos containing nearly 100 videos. To help you find the best of, we’ve compiled the Best of… playlist:
