Demo Day 2020 | Accelerate@Shea

A workshop featuring Shea Center’s Entrepreneur-in-Residence, Dunca Walker, held via Zoom as halfway through the program, Boston College sent all of its students home out of precaution due to COVID-19.

Accelerate@Shea

In the winter, we run a comprehensive 9-week accelerator for BC startups to help them develop their business ideas. Weekly workshops featuring accomplished startup founders teach teams a wide variety of topics from need-finding to design thinking to fundraising. A $1,500 check is given to each team to help them overcome their first financial barriers, and accelerator teams are also matched weekly with Start@Shea’s wide network of mentors.

Demo Day 2020

This year’s Demo Day featured 11 companies with 11 amazing ideas. Due to COVID-19, Demo Day was moved to a live-stream on our Youtube page. The event was open to everyone — students, professors, mentors, parents, and truly anyone! Each team in the Accelerator program presented a 2 minute pitch on April 16th and we from Start@Shea couldn’t be more proud of all that the student founders have accomplished in the past few months.

Below you will be able to find more information and the best way to contact and keep up with each company below and thank you in advance for supporting our student founders and their ideas:
