SpareFoot, a new online marketplace for self-storage facilities, will present at Capital Factory’s inaugural Demo Day in Austin, Texas, Sept. 9. Capital Factory, an early-stage technology incubator, hosts a 10-week summer program for startup companies, providing them with up to $20,000 in cash, more than $20,000 in free services, and mentorship by a group of successful entrepreneurs. The program culminates in a demo day where the startups present to investors, the press and the world.
The demo event will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the AT&T Conference Center on the University of Texas campus. Tickets are $30, which includes parking and lunch. The day’s programs will also be available via live video feed at Capitalfactory.com.
During the event, five startup companies, including SpareFoot, will present their business concept, fostering discussion and peer interaction with attending technology investors, executives, press and entrepreneurs. The other presenting companies are Cubit Planning, Famigo, HourVille and PetsMD.com.
Demo Day will kick-off with a keynote presentation by Mike Maples, managing partner of Maples Investments. A venture-capital panel titled “What’s It Take Today to Build a Super Startup?” will follow the company presentations and a feedback Q&A.
