Launch48 Launchpad Demo Day

For those luck few who were invited to attend the Launch48 Demo Day last Thursday, you were lucky enough to hear from 3 great startups including:

  • Bluefields - a social network and management system for football teams
  • HipSnip - a social shopping system that aggregates product advice and prices
  • MinuteBase - a mixture of minute taking and project management system

TechFluff was there and they interviewed each of the startups and Nick from London Business Angels.

Feedback was great, we met lots of great people from Google to Turner Broadcasting, and everyone thought the pitches were very professional which was great feedback for the Launchpad program and the startups!

If you’re interested in participating in future Launchpad programs please visit the Launchpad page and we will notify when we open applications for the next Launchpad program.


I’m not sure why the video looks squashed, I have notified techfluff.

Bootlaw – learn about law and business

If you haven’t heard of Bootlaw yet, you should definitely check it out.  It is run by Danvers and Barry, both professional lawyers who work a lot with startups, and they run regular events discussing the topic of law in relation to tech-related businesses.  They also sponsor Launch48 and are huge fans of our 48 hour startup weekends.

They have just announced their next event which will be held on the 20th of April in central London.  The format for the evening is:

6.30pm – doors open, drinks and networking.

7pm – erudite legal discussion with questions.

8pm – legal bit ends; more drinks, pizza (or something comparable) and networking

9pm – adjourn to local pub, toast success of new Bootlaw HQ etc.

Please note: this event is already full but you can sign up to their meetup group and Danvers will send you a humorous email when the next event is announced, read their web site, or join the waiting list for the upcoming event.

Interested in a lively discussion about business?

Deborah Huisken, a previous Launch48 mentor and business coach, is hosting a fantastic evening event that delve into issues faced by startups.

I have attended the last 2 events and found the discussion lively and engaging.  Other notable people have also attended including Chris Muktar from Wikijobs and Paul Sturrock from Slingshot Ventures.

If you are interested to learn about the following then you should definitely attend:

  • Strategy – art or science?
  • How do you start a strategic conversation?
  • How important is a business plan, and at what stage of the business?
  • What is scalability, and what role should it play in planning?
  • Given the complexity of the world we live in, how much can we plan for, anyway?
