Finding Signal In The Noise Of Demo Days

I'm taking a break from MBA Mondays today because Christina Cacioppo just posted a terrific blog post on the USV blog on her takeaways from a summer attending most every demo day imaginable.

Christina notes:

Over the past few months, I've seen over 160 companies come through eight different accelerator programs. It's a skewed group, but it captures the zeitgeist of a certain segment of the tech industry – and, I think, looking at these companies is one of the best ways to get a sense for which opportunities compel internet entrepreneurs today. Here's a look at some of what these entrepreneurs are thinking about – and where we all might be headed.

Over the course of the summer and into the fall, my partner Albert's office whiteboard started to fill up with sticky notes of various colors. Christina was mapping out all of the startups she was seeing. And in the end she came away with two big megatrends.

Go read her post and find out where they are.
