Stellar students: Present at Stanford for a spot at DEMO

You know how “whipper snappers” always tend to know how to use those “new fangled” devices? We think they are ahead of the curve as well. That is why DEMO created AlphaPitch for College and is extending its talent search to Stanford on July 20th.

We have teamed up with Stanford’s StartX, a heralded startup accelerator for Stanford student entrepreneurs to discover technologies that only still-growing brains can think up.

Students will have an opportunity to pitch their ideas to a panel of judges from venture capital firm Accel Partners and communications giant Alcatel-Lucent. The judges will provide feedback on how to grow the presenter’s innovation right there at the meeting. The most compelling of these presentations will be offered a spot at the DEMO conference.

Only 30 companies who apply will be chosen to pitch in Stanford, so apply now! Deadline to apply is July 15, 2011.

We will follow up with details on exact location and timing if you are selected.

Excited to see what the last generation is innovating for next generation technology.
