Launch Accelerator



The LAUNCH Accelerator selects 7 startups for each session. Program participants meet every Thursday and hear from a notable speaker and pitch top Silicon Valley investors. The LAUNCH team selects founders who are executing at an extremely high level in markets that are important. We look for world-class product design, traction, revenue, and technical execution -- said simply, people with skills and products that people love. We seek individuals who are deeply passionate and who possess a tremendous work ethic.



All of the founders we accept have a solid product in market. At least half of the startups we accept have significant traction and revenue. We do not invest in business plans, decks, or ideas -- ever. Occasionally we will accept a wildcard who has an MVP but little or no traction.

LAUNCH: Supporting Founders and Inspiring Innovation.

Article

Our mission at LAUNCH has always been to support founders and inspire innovation. Since 2009 (the year our founder Jason Calacanis started this conference in Silicon Valley), we've had the great pleasure of providing value to the startups & founders that we come across. The value comes in many different forms, such as:



Funding: By hosting events, we’re able to meet founders of many amazing startups that we often invite to our accelerator in San Francisco, and invest hundreds of thousands of dollars into them. To date, we've invested in over 200 startups. Our notable investments include Uber, Robinhood, Thumbtack, Desktop Metal, Wealthfront, DataStax, Calm, Tumblr, Trello.



Education: We’ve been hosting a 2x weekly podcast called This Week In Startups with 60M+ downloads, and have brought on guests such as Ev Williams, Chris Sacca, Chamath Palihapitiya, Patty McCord, Brit Morin, Esther Dyson, David Sacks & many more notable founders and investors.w:
