The Northwest Startup DEMO is designed to showcase the products being built by area entrepreneurs today. The DEMO is presented twice a year, and is sponsored by all six (6) area angel investment organizations. The goal of DEMO is to provide exposure for entrepreneurs toiling in obscurity and generate excitement around the next great idea here in the Pacific Northwest.
Strategic business reviews are the primary focus of discussion for Enterprise Forum programs. The program opens with a CEO or senior manager presenting their strategic plan. Expert panelists delve deep into the business's industry and markets - identifying its strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and challenges. The panelists pull from their vast experience to comment and ask questions on key issues pertaining to the business's financing, technology, operations, and sales and marketing efforts.
Another format Enterprise Forum programs follow is to highlight an emerging topic of interest to our audience. Panelists are selected from areas of expertise related to the business being reviewed including successful entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, specialized consultants and potential customers.
The audience is encouraged to participate through questions and comments following the presentations. Attendees include representatives from a wide range of industries and viewpoints contributing to a rich discussion of all topics of interest. As with all Enterprise Forum events, these events provide valuable opportunities for attendees to share advice and network with a group of their peers.
Global broadcasts are designed for entrepreneurs and investors involved in new business ventures. The Cambridge headquarters organizes the content and speakers. Panels are made up of industry experts in the fields of law, venture capital, investment banking and entrepreneurship. The broadcasts include an overview of the topic by the moderator, further exploration of the subject by each panelist, and an interactive discussion fielding questions from attendees and satellite-downlinked participants from around the world. In the Northwest, these events are hosted in Seattle.
