This fall, 21 early-stage tech startups were accepted into the Co.Launch program (2x the usual size) for a chance to compete for a coveted spot in the Co.Launch Finale!
Founders have to survive not 1, not 2, but 3 phases before they pitch at the finale! Each phase is a chance for the cohort to develop their startup and prove stronger customer validation, traction, and market potential. Along with the added competition, founders in Cohort X also gain 4 extra weeks of tailored 1:1 mentorship, expert sessions, and dedicated coaches to beef up their company 💪
