Startmate's Demo Day Reimagined Virtual Event Sees Record Engagement with Delegate Connect

Delegate Connect was engaged by Startmate to deliver their demo day, reimagined.


When COVID-19 stopped in person events going ahead, Startmate required a solution that allowed their event to be reimagined and the continuation of their clients being able to ‘pitch’ to investors.


With short notice, Delegate Connect was able to provision the Startmate Demo Day Reimagined Platform and the event was a huge success. Some of the key take outs were:

  • Over 2000 delegates were watching and engaged in the live stream over the 2-hour event
  • The event hashtag was the number one trending event on Twitter in Australia on the night of the event
  • Startmate said it was their best event ever, with engagement at levels they had never seen before
  • There were 4 different people talking in different rooms, with the broadcast being professional streamed to show each person who was talking, as well as videos of the companies


Overall, the event was a huge success and was delivered successfully by Delegate Connect.
