Get ready for Launch48 in 7 days

The first ever Launch48 is roughly 7 days away. Adil and I have been working hard to ensure this event has the best mentors, sponsors, and attendees not only from London but from many other parts of Europe with people attending from Spain, Germany, France and other countries.


In addition to the Mentors already announced last week, we are delighted to add the following Mentors to our list (in alphabetical order):

  • Simone Brunozzi – Amazon Web Services
  • Andrew Culpan – Aroxo
  • Hugh Chappell – TrustedReviews.com and bit-tech.net
  • Julian Lloyd Evans – Dennis Publishing
  • Pascal Finette – Mozilla
  • Aidan Fitzpatrick – Reincubate
  • Bindi Karia – Microsoft
  • Andrew Shorten – Adobe

For more information see the mentors page where you will be able to find out more information about the mentors and can put faces to names.


The final Sponsors for Launch48 are Dennis Publishing, Adobe, Amazon Web Services, Campaign Monitor, Huddle, Inbizvest, the iPlatform, and Techfluff.tv.  Many of them will be there on the weekend, so if you see them please say hi!


If you haven’t registered yet, you may have missed out.  We have a limit of how many people we can we physically fit, so if you want to attend please sign up for the Launch48 group on Meetup and quickly RSVP!  Meetup will close the event automatically once it is full.

Of course, if you can’t attend, please change your response on Meetup so someone else can RSVP.

Business Ideas

The Launch48 Meetup message boards have been booming recently with a number of great ideas from participants.  Please contribute your ideas and review other people’s ideas.  The more ideas, the better the event will be.

Adil and I look forward to meeting you at the first Launch48 event on Friday, February the 6th, 2009.
