Updated: Feb 1, 2022

Demo Day will be LIVE February 17th, 2022 at 4pm EST/2pm MST


We are a few short weeks away from our signature Demo Day showcase and we can't wait for you to hear from the entrepreneurs who've pushed the potential of their brands in Cohort 12.

Demo Day is an event that many people benefit from: entrepreneurs in the accelerator program have the chance to celebrate their milestones and successes, industry leaders in the consumer-packaged goods space have the chance to offer mentorship and networking opportunities to the newest up-and-coming brands, and our audience can learn about products that contribute positively to a healthy lifestyle. Shoppers care about the environment and the food that they add to their shopping cart, so it is Venturepark Labs' aim to help bring these products to the forefront of the market and the entrepreneurs behind them.

You can hear more about Cohort 12 LIVE at Demo Day on February 17th, 2021, 4pm EST/2pm MST, alongside special celebrity guests and our expert panelists. With the chance to win prizes and the opportunity to connect with like-minded entrepreneurs in the food and beverage, and health and wellness industry.
