DLL Storify of White House Demo Day … Part 3 -- Tuesday 8/4/15

Last update: Saturday 8/8/15
The White House hosted a Demo Day, convened by its Chief Technology Officer (CTO),  that showcased the wide-ranging talents of innovators and participation by some of the nation's leading venture capital firms. Unlike a private-sector Demo Day, where entrepreneurs “pitch” their ideas to funders, innovators from around the country joined President Obama to “demo” their individual success stories and show why we need to give every American the opportunity to pursue their bold, game-changing ideas. More information can be found on the program pageNote: Articles providing background information were posted prior to the event by BloombergWiredVentureBeat ... and Business Insider published a great follow-up article wherein some participants described how it felt to pitch their startups to President Obama ... Here's the link to the video of the presentations to President Obama
