Create-X Startup Launch, Georgia Tech’s entrepreneurial initiative and startup accelerator, just wrapped up its latest cohort on campus. 75 teams set up their booths last night for Demo Day, where they chatted with local investors, potential customers, and the larger Atlanta startup community.
If the line wrapped around Georgia Tech’s Exhibition Hall was any indication, Create-X Demo Day was the event to be at last night.
We took a spin around Demo Day to talk to founders and learn about their vision for their startups.
Here were some startups that caught our eye!
