Capital Factory DEMO DAY

Yesterday was the Capital Factory's annual "Demo Day".  This sold-out gathering has quickly become one of most engaging events for the Austin start-up community.

The day included impactful keynote presentations by Bob Meltalfe, Brain Sharples, and Auren Hoffman.  Additionally the five companies in this year's Capital Factory summer program (and 17 other start-ups) delivered short presentations to investors (whose nametags sported banners that read "I write checks") and others key members of the local the community.

The five Capital Factory companies (StoryMix Media, HelpJuice, SpeakerMix, SwimTopia, and Alumni Charger) all did a great jobs in presenting their information.  It was a great example of why it is so important for executives to develop their public speaking skills.  Entrepreneurs have several occasions to tell their stories, and those who can do this well will have the advantage of standing out from the crowd.

Congratulations to the Capital Factory and all their member companies, supporters and sponsors.

Have A Great Day.
