ASU SkySongArizona’s top student-run startup companies will compete at the first-ever Arizona Student Startup Demo Day on Friday, March 29, from noon to 5 p.m. at ASU SkySong. Twelve startups from Arizona State University, Northern Arizona University and the University of Arizona will pitch their companies to a panel of judges, vying for $30K in prize money.

Each startup will be judged on:

  • Problem and proposed solution
  • Strength of team and advisors
  • Market opportunity
  • Go-to-market strategy
  • Budget and use of funds
  • Progress made toward launch

One team from each university will receive $7K, and three runners-up from any of the schools will receive $2K each. In addition, one grand-prize winner selected from the top three teams will receive the inaugural Arizona Startup Territorial Cup and an additional $3K in prize money.

The event, which is sponsored by Hool Law Group and MAC6, is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided, and a reception with live music by local band The 8-Teaze will follow.
