Promise Demo Series

At our inaugural field convening, Early Futures, many of the 200 attendees asked us to build on the momentum by offering a broader platform for sharing ideas.  In response, we’re hosting Early Childhood Demo Days, a series of online, live events to showcase the most promising innovations across ECD.  

Please join us to be part of a national open marketplace for ECD innovation and impact. Funders, ventures, and key partners will discover, inform, and connect with each other.

Request for Nominations

Please submit your nominations for expert speakers, innovative ventures, and case studies relevant to these topics. You may nominate yourself and others. The first three Demo Days will focus on the following topics: 

1. Supporting Parents and Families in the Earliest Years*
2. Transforming Well Being through Social-Emotional Learning
3. Solving the US Crisis for Accessible, Affordable, & Quality Child Care

*Please submit nominations for Topic 1 by October 4

About Demo Series

With the Demo Series, we aim to create a national ECD marketplace for innovation and impact to:

  • make it easier and more efficient for:

  • funders to get a field overview and access to most innovative ventures and organizations

  • promising ventures and organizations to get connected to the right funders, partners, and customers

  • Attract new funders to the ECD innovation ecosystem

  • Accelerate the pace of interventions achieving impact and scale

  • Raise the national profile of social innovation in ECD

Demo Series will be followed by additional sessions to bring connections to life, including venture deep dives, investor meetings, regional innovation clusters, and customer pilot meetings.
