Jason Calacanis created the concept of the “demo pit” a decade ago, as a place where emerging startups could demo their products on a modest cocktail table--rising and falling based solely on the merit of their creation. This year we will select 150 startups to receive free demo pit tables and reserve 50 exhibitor tables for established companies that want to join the fun. Every day, five demo pit companies are selected by the Grand Jury, to join us on stage to pitch their company in two minutes.
