ROCK CENTER DEMO DAY 2021

The Arthur Rock Center for Entrepreneurship’s mission is to support founders, builders, and high-growth venture investors. The Rock Accelerator and the New Venture Competition are just two of the many Rock Center programs to support these entrepreneurs. At our New Venture Competition, you heard from only a few of the fantastic teams emerging from HBS this year. Rock Center Demo Day gives you a chance to hear from even more of our great teams. We encourage you to reach out to the teams about their ventures.
