Launchpad has come to an end and during the past 10 weeks we’ve seen great startup ideas lifting off!
The group of students and graduates from London Met brought a range of ideas to the table. In these intense 10 weeks we equipped them with the skills and knowledge to start a business ranging from talking to customers, creating landing pages, branding to finances and pitching.
Last Wednesday marked the culmination of the programme with Pitch Day, where the Launchpad participants pitching for our continued support in ‘Dragon’s Den’ style.
The panel of Business Founders were impressed, giving the thumbs-up to 6 startups that demonstrated ideas with commercial potential. They will have the opportunity to have a desk and enjoy a buzzing community at Accelerator, receive regular mentoring and have access to a pool of funds to help them continue testing and advance their ideas.
