Launch48 Showcase Review

Launch48 Showcase took place at Innovation Warehouse on Wednesday and even if we do say so ourselves it was a great event.

16 startups setup shop and exhibited in front of 100+ guests from a range of professions. Informal pitches were done, feedback given and business cards exchanged and we hope everyone left with contacts and networks that they didn’t have before the event.

A small competition was included in Launch48 Showcase and we recruited seven top entrepreneurs and investors to judge the startups in four categories. A huge thank you goes out to our judges:

  • Jon Bradford – CEO of Springboard.
  • Hugh Chappel – Investor.
  • Simon Jenner – CEO of Oxygen Accelerator.
  • James Kightley – founder of AngelHub.
  • James Parton – Director of European Marketing at Twilio.
  • Julian Ranger – Investor.
  • Ben Tompkins – General Partner at Eden Ventures.

And the winners were….
