LAUNCH HACKATHON

1,000 verified developers and designers will join us the weekend before LAUNCH Festival, competing for up to $1m in investment. 250 teams of four will spend 48 hours creating a company, with the top seven making it to the main stage of the LAUNCH Festival on Friday where they will be given two minutes to show their creations before a grilling from our judges!
The Grand Jury will select the top four projects and invite them to the LAUNCH Incubator--which comes with a $250,000 investment (for ~7% of the company).
