Founder & Partner


Demos Tsilikoudis spearheads Advance NYC’s event-focused partnerships and projects, bringing over 20 years of experience in live event production, theatrical production and management, fundraising, event marketing, and design from both the non-profit and for-profit worlds. As co-founder of Advance NYC, he has drawn from his knowledge in asset creation, marketing, promotions, publicity, and corporate partnerships to plan and execute a wide range of high-profile, large-scale engagements including Helen Keller International’s Spirit of Helen Keller Gala, Labyrinth Theater Company’s Celebrity Charades, and ArtsConnection’s annual Benefit Celebration. Prior to Advance NYC Demos held leadership positions for projects including logistic management and production planning for the national tour of 24M: The DRIVE4COPD Monument, a 13-ton traveling art installation; production management for the first annual NY Television Festival; general management for the NY Musical Theater Festival; and fundraising event management for the Parkinson's Disease Foundation, as well as Off-Broadway general management and producing house experience for a variety of NYC favorites. Demos once boasted long locks, minored in dance in college, and continues to grow his encyclopedic-like knowledge of Star Wars with the help of his sons.
