This event is a truly pan-Oxford event, featuring a section of hand-picked startups, spinouts and social enterprises linked to the University of Oxford and Oxfordshire in a fresher’s fair style setup. Attendees can meet each startup, and then “invest” in their favourites with #StartedinOxford dollars.
Each attendee will be given $1,000 #StartedinOxford dollars to invest in their favourite startup. The startup with the most investment at the end of the day will win the top prize, with two runners-up also benefiting from prize packages.
Last year’s prizes included £1000 package of legal support from Freeths, a membership to Grassroots, and £1000 cash prizes.
As an attendee you will get the opportunity to engage with Oxford-linked companies from a range of sectors and stages, as well as network with other attendees, including investors and key connectors in the Oxford-linked entrepreneurship ecosystem.
Who can apply?
The next #StartedinOxford Demo Day will be held in Trinity Term 2024. We take applications from student, staff, alumni and community startups, spinouts and social enterprises. All are welcome!
Details on how to apply to pitch as well as book tickets to attend are coming in 2024.
