Renaissance VC Hosts Pocketnest

Renaissance Venture Capital invites venture-backed Pocketnest to pitch at its annual DEI UnDemo Day




Renaissance Venture Capital DEI UnDemo Day® brings together some of the region’s top early-stage companies and technologies, including Pocketnest, for a virtual event with venture capital investors from around the country.


This is the first UnDemo Day® designed exclusively to attract national venture capital to diverse founders. The virtual event highlights companies from the Midwest and Central U.S. led by women, people of color, and other diverse communities. And, you guessed it: Certified Women-Owned fintech, Pocketnest, was surely included!


In a format similar to prior UnDemo Days®, the event includes large group “pitch rooms” as well as hundreds of curated one-on-one meetings between startups and VCs. Last year alone, 15 Michigan startups received venture funding as a result of UnDemo Day® introductions.

Renaissance and its partner Invest Detroit Ventures conduct coaching sessions prior to the event to help the participating startups prepare their pitches, and the startups will also have access to UnDemo Day® consultation on accounting, legal and human resources planning for their businesses from event partners Ernst & Young, Foley & Lardner, and Amy Cell Talent.
