On March 30, 2021, Georgetown Entrepreneurship hosted the inaugural Demo Day to highlight the 12 early-stage startups from the first Georgetown Startup Accelerator (GSA). The event featured presentations from each startup as well as guest speakers Ted Leonsis (C’77, P’14, P’15), founder, chairman, and chief executive officer, Monumental Sports & Entertainment, and Jonathan Neman (B’07), co-founder and chief executive officer, sweetgreen.

The startups, who presented at Demo Day, are taking advantage of the changes the pandemic has forced and are addressing some of the challenges and opportunities presented throughout the past year. For example, Little Red Box Grocery is using technology to bring healthy food options to food deserts in Galveston, Texas while Hi-RX is expanding at-home routine medical services.

“The Georgetown Startup Accelerator built on every positive experience I have had as a Georgetown student and alumnus,” said Rich Halverson (MBA’17), co-founder of Joint Homes, which offers a modern housing solution for military service members that delivers the benefits of ownership with the flexibility of renting. “The quality of the program, mentors, and our cohort exceeded expectations across the board.”
