Demo days…wouldn’t it be more fun if demo was short for demolition and not demonstration? Food for thought to all the accelerators.

In the last couple weeks, 500 startups graduated their 22nd batch (wow!) and Acceleprise graduated their 7th. There were a number of interesting companies tackling huge markets covering logistics to recruiting and everything in between. Here are my top enterprise picks emerging from 500 and Acceleprise along with my color commentary:

  • Elliot is trying to simplify global commerce. They connect and manage your customers, orders and products in over 90 channels across the world. There’s real traction and potentially exciting go-to-market channels that they can leverage in Shopify and Etsy. I also really like that Elliot plays on a huge macro trend of omnichannel eCommerce and bespoke brands.
