Pennovation Accelerator Demo Day [event recap]
Congratulations to the first cohort of the Pennovation Accelerator on a hugely successful summer! The Accelerator closed out with a Demo Day on which participating companies presented a completed slide deck that covered the different topics that were addressed during the Accelerator - market strategy, business and team formation, raising capital, etc. Demo Day also included remarks from the mentors and thought leaders who guided the companies through the program. Dorothy, a company that is building a ground-breaking risk assessment platform for homeowners in flood zones across the country, took home the Pennovation Accelerator Growth Award along with three months of free membership at the Pennovation Center. Simply Good Jars, a company that is changing the way Philadelphians think about healthy food options, took home the Best Pitch award.
