China-axlr8r: prepping companies for Demo day

It’s been a great Saturday here in Dalian with the Chinaccelerator team. This morning we watched every team practice their pitch.


I’ve spent this afternoon with all the startups, helping them polish their presentations.

I’ll share some more thoughts about the startups after the demo day on Wednesday, but all of these teams are bright, sharp, dedicated and driven and I’m honored to take part.

China-Axlr8r mentoring: crazy weekend coming

This weekend I’m headed up to Dalian, China to work with the 2013 crop of startups at Chinaccelerator. I’m not a startup fundraising expert, but I do live in PowerPoint so I hope to help the teams home their pitches as they warm up for the Chinaccelerator demo day next week in Beijing.

This is more or less my first experience as a “mentor” in this sort of scenario — though friends have listened to me bloviate plenty about startups and some Techyizu community members have derived advice from things I’ve said — and I’m quite excited to experience the energy, zeal and dedication from these teams.

Ill post some photos and thoughts during or after the weekend.
