But that’s not the only reason to attend. Here are five reasons to come to DEMO Spring 2012:

5. Evaluate more tech innovation: See 70 live launches and pitches from more untapped sources, including student, angel-funded, and bootstrapped innovators who benefit from the DEMO scholarship program to launch on the DEMO stage.

4. Get more global investment insight: Connect with innovators from North America, South America, Europe, Asia, and all points across the globe who come to DEMO to put their products on the worldwide DEMO stage. DEMO showcases products from concept to market-ready in the enterprise, cloud, consumer, social/media, and mobile sectors.

3. Interact with more influencers: Supercharge your networking in our new Accelerator Lunch Series, which brings you together with like-minded innovators and influencers to explore technology topics of interest to you.
