Launchpad helped me create my team - find my co-founder. The programme gave me the momentum I needed to push the idea forward. The mentors I was introduced to each provided valuable feedback. Finally, the final pitch proved to be extremely valuable clearly revealing the gaps investors saw in our business.

Launchpad helped us form our team and gain clarity on our mission. We started with a broad goal - too broad! - and the Launchpad workshops and pitch sessions helped us refine our idea and gain valuable feedback on where to take it. The program also added structure to an otherwise freeform goal.
