What success has Launch48 had with startups?
To date Launch48 has helped over 20 business ventures go from pitch to prototype during the Launch48 Weekend events. Of the 20 startups to leave the Weekends, 7 are still active, and 1 has received investment. This experience has helped Launch48 to learn what it takes to successfully create a startup.
Launch48’s co-founders both have successful businesses; Adil Mohammed runs a web design & development business, and Ian Broom runs a digital agency in London. Both started Launch48 in their spare time, we have developed the events and built a strong community over the past 18 months.
We expect that with 10 weeks of our focussed attention and the knowledge Launch48 has collectively in the community, we will be able to help the Launchpad startups get much further towards achieving their business goals. We are expanding the help we offer at Launch48 Weekends into the next stage of the startup journey.
