What happens during a Launch48 Weekend?

Please see the agenda page at http://www.launch48.com/weekend/

How are teams formed?

Teams are created after the final round of pitching.  Attendees are divided into interest groups based on what they want to do during Launch48.  The interest groups are spaced evenly around the room.  The interest groups are:

  • Development
  • Design
  • Marketing
  • Business and Finance

Each chosen business idea is called out and attendees who want to participate in the current business idea come forward.  Launch48 encourages attendees to evenly distribute themselves across the different groups, for example if all the developers go with one idea then the other ideas are likely to not have enough developers, and the developers are not going to have as much opportunity to work on an idea.

People can always move groups after they have joined one group.  This often occurs because:

  1. A team is missing a key skill
  2. Someone wants to move teams
  3. Someone’s skills would be better used by another team

How does ownership work?

Launch48 does not take a stake or ownership of any of the web businesses created during the event.

Each group should decide during the event how they want to distribute ownership and the intellectual property across the team.

Some examples of what has previously happened at Launch48 events include:

  • Teams have licensed their IP under open source/creative commons allowing anyone to continue using the IP for their own purposes
  • Teams have formed companies and transferred ownership of the IP to the company
  • Teams have decided to do nothing and leave the event each having a right to the IP they created during the event
