Have an interesting Web 3.0 project? Looking for community support and mentorship? Join us for Demo Day #2 to showcase your project!

Why Demo Day?

On top of large-scale global hackathons, smaller events, such as Demo Days, are also indispensable in developing the blockchain ecosystem. Many new Web 3.0 projects need more channels to gain access to funding and human resources. Moledao’s vision is to build a one-stop blockchain ecosystem to guide more people to buidl, grow, and empower themselves. Demo Day hopes to achieve this vision.

What is Demo Day?

Demo Day is a day which commonly refers to project showcases organised by an incubator, accelerator, or in our case, community (Moledao), whereby founders pitch their projects to a room full of investors, in the hope of securing investment and potential mentorship.

We will be hosting two types of Demo Day. One is a private, invite-only event. You must have received an invitation and RSVP’d to attend. Another is a public event, where anyone interested can participate.

There is no continuous “list” of investors who will be invited to Demo Day. Each season, Moledao will invite prominent Web 3.0 investors to join Demo Day. Interested investors are welcome to email us at hello@moledao.io to join future seasons of Demo Day.

When Will Demo Day Season 2 Be Held?

Demo Day will be held by Moledao every two months. They may be completely online, or they may be a hybrid event which combines both online and offline activities.

MoleGather — Demo Day Season 2 will be held in the middle of Dec 2022 (14 & 15 Dec), completely online. Demo Day Season 2 will be a public event, and we warmly welcome all startup projects and investors in Web 3.0 to participate.
