Austin Startup has just run a piece on the 2nd Annual Capital Factory Demo Day:
The 2nd Capital Factory Demo Day is coming on September 8th. We will have 300 investors, press, and technology entrepreneurs in attendance to watch the launch of the 5 companies from our 2010 program. This is an invitation-only event, and we?re keeping the quality of the content and the networking as high as possible.
I went last year, and I found it interesting to witness, essentially, part of a process for bringing new companies to market.? The event was surprisingly good, the startups were surprisingly good, and the discussions were pretty interesting.? It sets a high bar for the second event.? I think there's no doubt that Capital Factory and the Demo Day event have been good for the Austin startup scene, though the organizers will be the first to admit that this approach isn't for every startup, or every entrepreneur.
I plan to be there again this year, schedule willing.
