- Pitch their companies to and receive product feedback from a panel of investor judges, including Steve Case.

It was only a few months ago that Google set up the seven tech hubs. According to Google:
Google partners with a network of seven tech hubs in North America (initially in U.S. and Canada) to deepen our community ties in locations including Minneapolis, Chicago, Waterloo, Nashville, Durham, Denver and Detroit. These partners are technology leaders in their community and a natural home for Google communities like Google Developer Groups and Google Business Groups. Tech hubs provide a venue for developers and the wider tech community to engage directly with companies and training partners like Google. They host a range of events, workshops, and provide co-working space for entrepreneurs. Google enables tech hubs by providing them with technical content, business tools, and infrastructure upgrades, so that they can support increasing demand from developers and startups.
This is an important opportunity for any startup business, so go to Google Demo Day and show GreenLancer that you support them!
