TechHubTuesday 2018 Demoers: what are they up to now?

Since October 2010, our monthly #TechHubTuesday Demo nights have become our flagship event. The premise is easy - 3 minutes to demo, 3 minutes for a Q&A, and live feedback to encourage as much useful product input for the startups as possible, all from a 130 strong audience full of other founders, investors, corporates and startup enthusiasts.

In 2018 we ran nine Demo Nights, creating a platform for 61 startups to demo their products to a combined audience of 2,300+ people, including 185 investors and 176 corporates.

We also took demo night on tour for the first time in 2018, partnering with both Transferwise and Grant Thornton to co-host November and December events, with a focus for fintech products for our Transferwise event.

If you’re considering demoing at one of our demo nights in 2019, you may be wondering what happened to this year's lineup, so we’ve taken the time to highlight some of our demoers key achievements below.

Thanks to all those that demoed this year, and helped make 2018 demo nights so memorable.
