On August 24 and 25, YC will host our 31st Demo Day live over Zoom. After considering community feedback from our first, rapidly planned online Demo Day in March, we’ve decided that a live Demo Day is an important part of founders’ YC experience. The event will span two days, with half the batch presenting on day one and the other half on day two; every company will have one minute to present. At the start of each day, a single-slide summary, short company description, and team bio for the companies presenting will be available to investors through the YC Demo Day website. At the end of the week on August 28, recordings of the presentations will be published on the website.
The batch presenting at Demo Day is unique and powerful. This is our first batch to participate in an entirely remote program and our first batch to run entirely during a global COVID lockdown. We are proud of how they have come together to support one another and build a community as strong and vibrant as the 30 batches who have come before them.
