What our founders are saying

Co.Labs gave me the tools to build Cadence

"I entered Co.Launch with a problem I needed to solve but no technical expertise. As a non-tech founder, Co.Launch gave me the tools I needed to start and grow Cadence. I would not be where I am today without Co.Labs and I am forever grateful."

Co.Labs is a world-class accelerator

"Co.Launch is where you go to take your idea to the next level.  It is a world-class accelerator in our own backyard and it completely changed how I see the world. I now feel like I have the tools I need to build a massive company."

Co.Labs pushed us to better define and validate our product

The Co.Launch program was really valuable as it pushed us to better define and validate our product. As non-technical founders, the program also taught us how to take our business skills and apply them to a tech company.
