The Y Combinator Demo Day is a startup pitching competition held twice a year featuring the latest batch of startups that made it into the Y Combinator accelerator program.
Although it’s called “Demo Day,” the event spans three whole days. The first two days are when the different startups pitch their ideas to a room of about 450 investors and members of the press. The third day is called “Investor Day.” This is where different startups get the opportunity to sit down and speak with interested investors for a few minutes about their business, and even possibly close a funding agreement.
One important thing to note about the Y Combinator Demo Day is that you don’t automatically secure a place the moment you get accepted into their accelerator program. You’ll still need to request an invite, and you’ll need to RSVP that you’ll be attending the event to secure your chance to pitch your startup.
