Eventbrite - Lightning Strikes! Catalyst Demo Day @ The Franklin Institute

Demo Day culminates three stages of software development supported through the DOE Catalyst program, which runs from ideation to prototyping and incubation. The Catalyst cohort of teams had 60 days to develop innovative MVPs in the building efficiency and solar energy technology areas with access to a host of resources, including $25,000 to unlock the Topcoder software crowdsourcing community. At Demo Day the Catalyst cohort of 19 teams from around the country will pitch and demo innovative solar energy-focused software products to an esteemed panel of investors, entrepreneurs, and energy policy experts. Judges will award up to $700,000 in cash prizes to 7 of the 19 competing teams.
