The McGill Demo Days is about developing the McGill entrepreneurship ecosystem, showcasing the success’ of our start-ups, and promoting our highly beneficial program. It's an opportunity for the most promising McGill startups from the McGill Dobson Cup and the McGill X-1 Accelerator to pitch and engage with the global McGill alumni community of successful entrepreneurs, investors and VCs.
