MediaWorks: Demo Day
Knoxville Entrepreneur Center will be hosting the inaugural MediaWorks: Demo Day on August 5th, 2014 from 4pm-7pm at the Square Room in Downtown Knoxville’s Market Square. MediaWorks is a selective, highly immersive instructional and mentorship driven program for startups in the digital media sector, which includes digital video, augmented reality, digital signage, digital audio, video games, or digital art. Demo Day is an opportunity for the companies that have completed the accelerator to showcase their ideas to supporters, customers, and possible investors.
The goal of MediaWorks is to showcase a thriving digital media startup community in East Tennessee, and represents a key element in KEC’s ongoing drive to highlight the region’s leadership in technology, digital media and media content creation.
The evening will include a special introduction by Mayor Madeline Rogero and a keynote speech given by Susan Packard. Susan is a co-founder and former CFO of HGTV. She held a variety of senior positions at Scripps Networks Interactive, serving most recently as the President of Brand Outreach, responsible for aligning corporate citizenship activities. Susan is an author and seasoned entrepreneur whose extremely successful career in media highlights the opportunities and challenges for women as entrepreneurs and leaders in our community.
