Demo Day of Cohort 15

Newest Birdhouse alumni pitch in front of close to 100 potential investors

On June 20th, the newest batch of Birdhouse alumni pitched in front of close to 100 potential investors during our Demo Day. This event concluded the latest 12-week program of the 15th cohort of Birdhouse.

Our event venue at Cresco was buzzing with the energy of 11 innovative startups, each one ready to show off weeks of sweat and hard work.

This wasn’t just any end-of-program celebration, but also a showcase of how far each startup had come, all wrapped up in the unique atmosphere only the Birdhouse tribe can bring.

Perfecting their pitch

For twelve weeks, these startups have been polishing and perfecting their pitches.

They weren’t just talking to walls, though. Every session they were facing a new set of eyes and ears—mentors, advisors, the folks who've seen it all before.

Talk about cooking your way to perfection! Because we believe that this kind of pressure shapes and creates diamonds!

The Birdhouse journey & the pitches

We started the evening with not only incredible stories, movies and testimonials about the journey which our Cohort 15 just completed.
This evening was the perfect moment to also look back at all the things we've done at Birdhouse and who we are today.

After taking the time to look back on the journey, it was time to refocus on why we came here together today.
Our startups had the chance to pitch in front of close to 100 investors from both within and beyond the Birdhouse network.

This all with Birdhouse team member Hadewig Decorte guiding us through the day.

Another successful event

It was clear—this wasn’t just another networking event. It was a gathering of our Birdhouse tribe, all there to lift each other higher. The pitches? Night and day difference from day one, showing just what happens when you put your all into it. The exchange of contacts afterward wasn’t just polite business card swaps; it was the start of conversations that might just be the beginnings of the next big thing.

And the Birdhouse crew? They were proud as can be of pushing this program and its participants to new heights, with the support of a tribe of mentors and advisors!

We even had an alum flying in from Italy, just to catch the vibe and reconnect. If that doesn’t tell you about the bond the Birdhouse tribe creates, what will?
