A Startup Program Unlike Any Other
Flashpoint startups employ a unique approach to understand their markets, discover authentic customer demand, and build innovative products that meet it. At Demo Day, all the startups in the current batch show their work. VCs and angel investors have told us that they like investing in Flashpoint companies because the founders have a clearer understanding of their customers and markets. Following the presentations, investors and founders will have an opportunity to talk and learn more about each other.
