On the evening of July 21, eleven teams pitched their ventures as part of the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute’s (YEI) tenth-annual Demo Day. Ranging from a sustainable clothing line to a backyard ice rink company, to renewable food ventures and a charitable giving platform, the ventures were diverse, exciting and impactful.
Prior to YEI Demo Day 2016, the presenting teams, who are all part of the YEI Fellowship, had spent the past ten weeks diligently working on various aspects of their ventures. Their hard work was demonstrated in Luce Hall to an enlivened audience that was standing-room only. After the eleven presentations had concluded the audience was able to oVote for their favorite venture. The audience award went to April Koh of Spring, a screening application that matches patients who experience depression with accurate treatment plans. YEI Demo Day 2016 was an outstanding showcase of the YEI Fellows and the incredible amount of hard work and passion each student has poured into their venture.
