Web 2 LaunchPad Open For Submissions

By - August 30, 2007


The third annual LaunchPad, where we highlight cool companies in our industry, is open for submissions. The release is here.

This year we’re doing something new – having a panel of VC judges who critique your presentation on stage. It’s a great chance for a handful of companies – 6 to 8 – to present in front of all 1200 of the Web 2 attendees and press/bloggers.

Also, we are not charging a fee to enter or win, and the competition is open to any company that is pre-public – not just companies who are launching. If you want to enter your company, head here.

  1. Also, we are not charging a fee to enter or win…
    That is fantastic that no fee is being charged. This makes it accessible to tightly budgeted StartUps. The publicity that the participants with good reviews will receive could help them enormously in getting funding and potential customers.

    Was this new policy influenced by the suggestion made on this related post from last year?
