Accelerator Demo Day 2020

Reserve your spot and enjoy this year’s Demo Day from home. We recommend setting up a cosy seat and snacks for the best experience.

Be inspired by Deakin entrepreneurs. This year, five Deakin startups have risen against the waves of disruption and showed the world what’s possible! Join us at the SPARK Deakin Accelerator Demo Day on Thursday 24 September 2020, 6-8pm AEST (virtual).  

Expect a fun and interactive night of laughs thanks to our comedian M.C., Annie Louey, and inspiration from our teams and keynote by a special guest speaker. We’ll also be joined by Deakin’s VC Professor Iain Martin to celebrate this special occasion. 

Tickets will be available soon. Register interest to be the first to know when!
