Last Saturday, TechNode hosted it’s XDEMO event, a serial demo event showcasing nine booming startups in the area on September 12th at the XNODE Bay Valley office near Fudan University in Shanghai.

Over the next three months, XDEMO event will be hosted in Shanghai, Beijing, Shenzhen and Hangzhou. Every city event presents 10 to 15 teams, each with an elevator pitch in front of investors from XFounder club, an invitation only community consisting of startups, industry experts, venture capitalists. Any startups with an innovative product or prototype that has not yet raised A round funding can apply to pitch on the stage. In December, the selected startups from XDEMO will gather in Shanghai International Innovation Competition to select best startups from different categories. 

“It was interesting to see such a diverse group of startups working in different categories like infrastructure, consumer application, hardware, and more. I think it shows a lot of progress in the community in Shanghai. I see a lot of exciting opportunities for the ecosystem, as you see more and more high quality companies working hard and moving ahead,” said Calvin Chin, CEO of Transist Shanghai who was one of the judges on the demo day.
