What is Demo Day?
On Demo Day, the latest batch of Y Combinator-funded founders present their companies to a room full of specially selected investors and press. Summer 2021 Demo Day will be a two-day online-only event.
Demo Day is a private, invitation-only event and is always oversubscribed. You must have received an invitation and RSVP'd YES to attend.
There is no continuous “list” of investors who are always invited to Demo Day. Investors are invited based on their recent investment history with YC.
When is Demo Day?
At the end of March and the end of August each year.
Demo Day for the Summer 2021 batch will be held via live stream on Tuesday, August 31st and Wednesday, September 1st, 2021 from 9AM-1:30PM PT.
Where is Demo Day held?
For the Summer 2021 batch, Demo Day will be held online.
What is the current format of Demo Day?
For Summer 2021, the event is a two-day virtual only event. Each company presents for one minute, with breaks throughout the day. Our Demo Day website will provide you with access to the live stream, company information and the ability to connect with each company.
How do I get an invitation to Demo Day?
Invitations are based primarily on your investment history, with special weight to investments in YC companies. We will automatically invite investors who have invested regularly in YC companies. You can also apply to attend.
When is Investor Day?
After analyzing its effectiveness, we will no longer be hosting Investor Day (as of the W19 batch).
