Demo Night marks the culmination of CO.LAB’s Summer 2018 startup accelerators, which support entrepreneurs working in the consumer goods and next-gen internet markets.
Over the last 12 weeks, 16 companies ranging from breweries to software providers have collaborated with business experts and mentors to fast-track the development of their businesses. 

Designed for high-growth startups, the accelerators support entrepreneurs working to scale their companies through the pursuit of pilot partnerships, angel or venture capital and new customers. At Demo Night, these companies will pitch their concepts to an audience of investors, potential corporate partners and others who can help them move their work forward.
 
“CO.LAB's support of high-tech and consumer-focused entrepreneurs reflects the best of our region's entrepreneurial assets,” said Marcus Shaw, CEO of CO.LAB. “Chattanooga's legacy of building strong consumer brands is rooted in our startup spirit and quest for our most fulfilled lifestyle, a passion we continue to see in our Consumer Goods companies. In addition, our GIGTANK companies have leveraged our incredible internet infrastructure and network of mentors and advisors to launch companies that are best positioned to grow here in the Gig City.”
 
"With the launch of CO.LAB’s Consumer Goods Accelerator earlier this summer, entrepreneurs have been refining their go-to-market strategy, drawing on Chattanooga’s deep network of experts in the outdoor and food and beverage markets. 
 
"Now in its sixth year, CO.LAB’s GIGTANK Accelerator annually attracts entrepreneurs from across the nation to take advantage of the Chattanooga’s lightning-fast, low latency broadband network. The program has earned global recognition for becoming the world’s only startup accelerator wired to a metro-wide gigabit network. At Demo Night, GIGTANK entrepreneurs will present applications in mapping and location analytics, augmented reality and peer-to-peer netwoking and data analytics," officials said.
 
In addition to pitching their companies to the public, CO.LAB’s Summer 2018 entepreneurs will demo their products and services during the networking portion of the event.
