One day after the valentine’s day a large group of people dedicated their entire day attending 500 startups 19th demo day and I was one of them. This year 44 startups joined from different parts of the world with a dream to improve our life. 500 startups CEO Dave McClure proved one more time that his company stands for diversity, innovation and empathy by giving these companies a chance to join the program (U.S as well as non-U.S startups across the world).
“Our founders come from multiple countries, they cross borders and they need to be able to get here to help build jobs and businesses that employ U.S. citizens,” said Dave McClure.
He also said, “We did not hold these leaders accountable (during the election campaign) as customers and as employees of companies like Google and Amazon and Microsoft and Facebook and others,” he said. “Those are people who have influence and were invited to sit at the table with Donald Trump.”
Here is the list of the companies attended the demo day :
