What to expect

During the event, you'll hear pitches covering a diverse range of industries including health, digital, finance, consumer, and environment.

You'll also hear from our keynote speaker, Dr Olivia Ahn, Co-founder of Planera, the market’s first flushable sanitary pads. Olivia pitched at the first London Demo Day.

After the pitches, there'll be a reception where you'll have a chance to network over refreshments with other guests, investors, and startup teams.
