Three Cheers for Demo Day!

On Wednesday, May 24th, at 9:30 a.m. at the Carnegie Library Music Hall of Homestead in Munhall, PA, a dozen companies launched from Innovation Works’ software and hardware accelerators Alphalab and Alphalab Gear.

After each entrepreneur pitched their company, a block party ensued allowing attendees to follow up with the companies, to ask questions, demo products and even walk through a demo of a modular home.  There was even lunch.
