We encourage you to reach out to Launchpad investors both online and in the startup community - engaging with our investors will provide you with useful insight into successfully navigating the application process as well as the group’s investment interests.
Following the application process, companies determined to be a potential fit will be ushered down one of two paths:
Catalyst is a terrific on-ramp to Launchpad - it is a casual pitch event with an emphasis on relationship building.
At Catalyst, you will be one of 12 startups invited to introduce your company to Launchpad investors via a short pitch and a brief Q&A. The remainder of the event is focused on networking. Promising companies coming out of Catalyst may be invited to pitch in our Main Forum as a candidate for investment.
This avenue is geared toward companies that are at the point of market entry and ready to raise a priced equity round of $500K-$2M.
Companies directed down this path will be matched with a scouting team comprised of 4-5 Launchpad investors with relevant industry expertise. This small group will advise you and closely evaluate your readiness to present to the full membership at an upcoming monthly forum.
