Awesome Inc Demo Day 2012 exceeded expectations. It is an exciting time to be a part of the Lexington startup community and the teams participating in Demo Day experienced that excitement first hand.

We're sad to say it's closing out time... This summer has been a great experience for all involved. Special thanks to all the program's supporters and mentors. The teams have come such a long way since June, but they still have work to do and we're excited to see where they take it from here. We'll still be mentoring them along the way and they can still use your help!
Special Thanks to program supporters Commerce Lexington and the Lexington ICC.
