MuckerLab, a startup accelerator focused on incubation-stage Internet software, services and media ventures, is holding its annual Winter Class Demo Day event today in Los Angeles.

Class Demo Day is the culmination of MuckerLab’s three-month program where its 10 current portfolio companies are provided funding, office space, collaboration opportunities with other startups, and access to an experienced mentor network of investors and entrepreneurs. Class Demo Day offers the companies a chance to present their business strategy and the market opportunity to potential investors and announce their value proposition to the press.

“Our first Class Demo Day in April was a great event that provided select startups with a professional showcase to meet and talk one-on-one with some of the savviest investors in Los Angeles,” said MuckerLab Co-Founder Erik Rannala. “Our second Class Demo Day brings a wide range of businesses, including many companies that are at the forefront of the social and mobile revolutions. Los Angeles continues to produce a large number of quality and disruptive firms and is quickly becoming a hub of real innovation. We look forward to presenting these companies to a distinguished group of investors who are eagerly searching for the next big market opportunity.”
