It’s a Wrap!
After 13 weeks, the Barclays NYC accelerator powered by Techstars ended with Demo Day on October 16th, 2015. All 11 companies in our cohort presented their pitch to an audience of over 500 investors, mentors and financial services business leaders.
The Liveoak Demo Day presentation began with a brief introduction from one of our mentors, Charles Schwartz, Barclays Managing Director of Group Design and Digital Office. Charles has been very instrumental and has provided excellent mentorship to our team.
During our five minute pitch, we outlined the opportunity/problem, explained the Liveoak solution and showed a short product video that demonstrated how Liveoak works. We also announced key benchmarks that we accomplished during our 100 days inside the Barclays accelerator.
Liveoak announced a five year, global enterprise contract with Barclays across multiple engagements over multiple continents, eight enterprise pilots and an agreement with a major software enterprise reseller.
Post Demo Day, the next amazing chapter began and is primarily focused on meetings with customers, investors and strategic partners. Thirteen weeks of nonstop work in New York City was so worth the final outcome.
We are truly grateful for the experience and support from both Techstars and Barclays. If you are interested in checking out our Demo Day presentation, please message me and I will send you instructions.
