IDEA TO SEED INVESTMENT
A Pre- Accelerator
About Startup Launchpad
This program is focused on early-stage startups to help you move from concept to MVP (minimum viable product) and enable you to be Seed Investment ready
You will be getting your hands dirty, you will be spending most of your time talking to customers, partners, and competitors. You will practice evidence-based entrepreneurship and learn how to use a business model to brainstorm each part of a company and customer development to get out of the classroom to empathize with your customer and understand their needs better
Based on the customer and market feedback you have gathered, you will develop an MVP (minimum viable product) and rapidly iterate and build what your customers would actually want to buy and pay for.
Finally, you will practice your pitch and present in front of potential investors

What is a Pre-Accelerator?
To get into an accelerator you need to have a prototype/MVP and some customers.
There is no platform to help people who have just an idea, hence we created this pre-accelerator program to make you accelerate and/or seed investment ready
What is the program Fee?
There is no fee charged and no equity take
We get our resources from Mentors, volunteers, and sponsors. However, this will be highly curated and only the selected startups will be invited to the program, hence hurry and apply now
