About the 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 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.

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.

*Please submit your nominations for Demo Day 1 - "Supporting Parents and Families in the Earliest Years" - by October 4.

Topic and Nomination Details
The first three Demo Days will focus on the following topics:

1. Supporting Parents and Families in the Earliest Years
What are the challenges and opportunities of our fragmented system for serving parents and children in the earliest years? How can we use technology and behavioral insights to effectively reach parents and improve outcomes for children? What are the opportunities to embed these innovations in existing programs and systems?

2. Transforming Well Being through Social-Emotional Learning
Why and how should we support parents and caregivers in teaching SEL at scale? How can we ensure SEL reaches the children and families facing the greatest adversities? What would it take to achieve deep impact in targeted SEL interventions? How can technology most effectively aid these efforts? How can we help ECE teachers develop resiliency so they can do their work more effectively?

3. Solving the US Crisis for Accessible, Affordable, & Quality Child Care
How can we make high quality child care accessible for the children and families facing the greatest adversities? What are the key opportunities to expand supply, improve caregiver working conditions, and increase quality at scale? What are the opportunities for innovators to partner with established programs - and for established programs to leverage technology, behavioral insights and emerging child care business models?
