Today DEMO Mobile announces the opportunity for six startups to participate in the Angel Alley program at DEMO Mobile for no charge. Knowing that bootstrapped start-up founders typically are living off of Ramen noodles and pizza, the cost to participate in Angel Alley is $0! This was made possible by generous support of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati (WSGR), which is sponsoring all six displays at Angel Alley. “The Angel Alley program is very much in line with our goals for our new wsgr|SOMA office and a great way to support early-stage companies and give them an opportunity to get in front of the right people,” says Todd Carpenter, a partner in WSGR’s new SOMA office.”
Now for the fun part—a little competition! If you are a bootstrapped start-up without any professional angel investment, make sure to apply by February 22nd using the super simple form located here:
A team of judges will select up to 20 companies from the broader applicant pool to pitch to a panel of VCs and start-up founders at the wsgr|SOMA offices at 139 Townsend Street on March 7th. The top six companies from the pitch competition will be invited to attend and display at DEMO Mobile April 17th in SF. “This is an amazing new opportunity for bootstrapped start-ups to show off their stuff at Demo and attract the attention of the media and angel investors at the conference,” said Neal Silverman, General Manager of DEMO. As an added bonus, one of the start-ups in Angel Alley will be selected to present an Alpha-Pitch based on an audience vote.

DEMO Fall 2012 Angel Alley Winner, DrinkCity:
“Angel Alley was a great leap forward for DrinkCity. It really made us get our ducks in a row in terms of organization and pitching and fast-forwarded the funding process. Off of our win at DEMO, we received interest from several of the big-name VC’s and a few big angels and we are now in our final negotiations for a very large Series A to expand the company nationwide. ”
