Application & Key Deadlines

The Launch 2019 Application is now closed!

Thank you to every team that applied, we’ll be opening the 2020 Launch cohort application in the Fall of 2019!

Judging Criteria

We’ll evaluate your startup’s potential for committing fully, growing over the program, and succeeding afterwards.

To us, full commitment means that you will show up to each and every session with your coaches and mentors, you will engage with the other startups in the program to learn from their experiences and share your own, and you will not only openly receive but also proactively gather feedback from all sources: mentors, other startups, industry experts, investors, and customers.

To us, growth over the program means you translate your participation into action: you acquire more customers, launch products, develop funding leads or actually raise money, and regularly consider whether you should pivot or persevere – and take action based on your conclusions.

To us, success after the program means you continue to grow and achieve your goals (whether revenue targets, accelerator admission, funding, or otherwise). When we check in with you down the line (and we will!), we’d love to see you living the lessons you learned during LAUNCH and getting your product and team out in front of funders and customers – and winning.
