Betatron wraps up Cohort 3 featuring 10 startups

Betatron Cohort 3 Demo Day

Earlier this month on Thursday 2nd August 2018, Betatron held its Demo Day for the ten startups in cohort 3. The event was held at the Hong Kong Stock Exchange with a total of 675 people registering for the event. During the event, each startup delivered a five-minute pitch showcasing their business and the traction they’ve been generating.

Sam Ameen – Betatron’s Director of Marketing commented, “We’re delighted to see the traction our ten startups have generated since they started cohort 3. It’s not surprising to see a significant amount of investor interest shown already for each team. It’s been exciting to see the Betatron program improving each cohort, with more investors, mentors, and experienced entrepreneurs joining our network to provide hands-on guidance and support for our startups. The plans for the next few cohorts are already underway, with the vision to take Betatron to the next level to support the Greater Bay Area’s entrepreneurial ecosystem.”

The ten startups in cohort 3 are:

Silicon Valley Where Dreams Are Made Of, (There’s Nothing You Can’t Do) When You’re Listening to Dave McClure

I just returned from attending the 500 Startups Kobe Japan Demo Day for a pre-accelerator program they were running there with the Kobe government. And while the demo day was a standard affair (which 500 have refined to a science where it was almost the shortest content segment of the day, amongst a talk by Rishi Narang of AngelList and 500’s legal counsel Neil Dugal on how KISS works) but the real star is Dave — not “Blow-up-Sumo-Outfit Dave” or the “Cat-in-the-Hat Dave” but the Dave I know best: Startup Evangelist Dave and what he calls the Silicon Valley State of Mind (herein known as SVSOM).
