The Aspect Student Accelerator Programme (ASAP) Demo Day is a showcase and celebration of some of the UK’s finest social-impact and social entrepreneurship talent. The event will bring together social impact ventures, as well as investors, entrepreneurs, students, staff, and alumni from across the UK’s Aspect network and around the world. Attendees will hear pitches from the cohort of 19 socially-focused businesses, network with the founders and other attendees, and learn more about what these unique businesses have to offer.

About the keynote speaker Rishi Khosla OBE is the CEO and co-founder of OakNorth, the next-generation credit science platform focused on creating a better borrowing experience for the “missing middle” – the growth businesses who are the backbones of economies and communities globally. Prior to this, Rishi was the CEO and co-founder of Copal Amba, a financial research firm which was scaled to 3,000 employees and sold to Moody’s Corporation in 2014. He is also an early stage investor in Paypal and Indiabulls. He has an MSc in Accounting & Finance from the LSE and a BSc in Economics from UCL.

Where to start? If you have never been to a Demo Day before, this is the perfect opportunity to meet the ventures, meet industry-expert judges, and meet each other. You’ll have an opportunity to meet other attendees in the Networking session, and be able to speak directly to founders in the Expo area.

How can I support the ventures? Each company will have a different ask and may be looking for certain assistance. Please do think about how you could support the ventures – even an introduction could be very useful for the right venture. We hope this event will provide many opportunities to create connections across the Aspect ecosystem, and across the globe.
