On Tuesday, August 4, the White House hosted a Demo Day where we showcased the wide-ranging talents of innovators from across the country. 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.
But we didn't want the days activity to be limited to events in Washington, DC. Thats why we encouraged entrepreneurs, innovation spaces, universities, and more to host their own Demo Day events and follow along live as we engage in a conversation about how we can ensure that everyone has access to the tools and resources they need to make their ideas a reality.
