Time flies when you’re having fun and the last 4 months flew by! Our first cohort in San Francisco kicked off in August and the companies have been working relentlessly over the last 4 months to build their businesses. We are excited about the progress they have made and look forward to showcasing them on 12/1 at 6pm at Salesforce’s Rincon Center office. Seven companies will be pitching at Demo Day and all of them will likely be raising money over the next few months.
