The Preccelerator ® Program Virtual Demo Day kicks off on September 24th @ 3:30 pm, and you’re invited to take part in the festivities.
Preccelerator cohort companies are early stage, and we work hand in hand with them throughout their term to know their market and users, foster their leadership skills, build and test their product, avoid legal pitfalls, ensure the defensibility of their products, acquire users and partnerships and prepare them for the fundraising process. Now it’s time to showcase their efforts.
Following the pitches, we will hear from Jason Nazar and learn more about his founder journey, his advice to fellow startup founders and his outlook on the market. Moderated by our own Scott Alderton.

UNOMI’s motion capture software will give content creators the ability to easily track human movement within their home or studio, which will eliminate the need to rent expensive motion capture studio space and equipment. Large-scale animation studios will be able to drastically reduce costs allowing them to create more content in a significantly shorter amount of time.
