No PowerPoints. No Judges. No Prizes. Just straight exposure.

Democamp is an annual event for the Atlantic Canadian startup ecosystem to come together and showcase their innovative technologies to their peers, while reaching potential new customers or investors, as well as the rest of the community.

Founders from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, PEI, Newfoundland and Labrador are invited to explain what their tech is, how it works, why it is helpful and more, but must do so without a PowerPoint presentation or any other type of slide deck. This makes the presentations more focused on the technology being demonstrated.

Each participant will have five minutes to demo their hardware or software product to an audience, and attendees will be encouraged to give feedback and ask any questions following their presentation. A set amount of time will be available for questions from the audience.

Democamp 2024 will take place in-person on Thursday, February 15 at 5:30pm.

Thank you for your interest, applications to demo are closed.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
