The 4th of July is coming up fast (next Wednesday), which means the July 6th deadline to apply for a DEMO scholarship is also coming up fast (next Friday). This is your official warning to stop putting it off and make sure you fill out your application before your summer plans get in the way.

We’re giving 30 bootstrapped startups a free ride to the show. If you’re selected as one of the 30, you’ll still get the coaching, the PR team, the top-notch production squad, and all of the other perks that have kept companies coming back to launch products at DEMO throughout the past 20 years. You’ll also get the chance to show off your company at all of our DEMOs around the world (Brazil, Kenya, Singapore, and China), all completely free.

So apply today, and we’ll get in touch with you shortly with more details on the selection process. And to mix things up a bit, the first person to leave a comment that successfully identifies the patriotic gentleman in the photo above will be instantly approved for a full scholarship*.

*Not true. But we will make sure to get you an interview.
