About this event




At London Demo Day, student and recent graduate entrepreneurs from UCL’s Hatchery, King’s20 Accelerator and Imperial Enterprise Lab will present their innovative startups to a group of international angels and investors.

Each university will nominate 5 startups currently in the early growth stage and looking to raise between £100,000 and £1 million.

Startups will pitch to leading investors, partners and alumni, drawn from the collective communities of UCL, Imperial College London and King’s College London.

Our keynote speaker will be UCL alumnus David Abrahamovitch, co-founder and CEO of Grind hospitality chain.

During the event, you’ll hear pitches covering a diverse range of industries including healthcare technologies and social impact businesses.

After the pitches, founders and investors will be able to meet in small groups in an expo lounge.

One-minute pre-recorded videos by each of the startups will also be available to watch before, during and after the event.
