Renaissance UnDemo Day® is a semi-annual event that connects Midwest startups with venture capital investors from around the U.S. The goal is to make useful introductions that ideally lead to investment in historically underrepresented geographies and founders.

2024 Spring DEI UnDemo Day® is a virtual event on April 17 that will bring together some of the Midwest’s top early-stage companies with venture capital investors from around the country. DEI UnDemo Day® is designed exclusively to attract venture capital investment to Midwest startups led by underrepresented* founders or CEOs.

The event agenda will include large group pitch rooms as well as hundreds of curated 1:1 meetings between startups and VCs. If you are a startup interested in applying to participate in Spring UnDemo Day® or if you have any questions, please contact Christina Drake at Investor registration will open in February.


*Underrepresented communities include Arab American, Black, Hispanic/Latine, LGBTQ+, Native American, Veteran, and/or Women.
