LAUNCH is Techweek’s startup competition for seed stage and series A companies. Companies from around the globe travel to Techweek to pitch their company to judges and Techweek attendees. Criteria for evaluating startups are as follows: target markets, problem or need, solution, team, board advisors, market traction, competitive advantage, revenue model, and strategy.
2015 was a landmark year for Techweek with over 700 participants, and we have even greater expectations for 2016.
With that sentiment, Techweek is proud to announce Amazon Launchpad as the Presenting Sponsor of the Tehcweek Chicago 2016 Launch Competition! Amazon Launchpad is committed to helping hardware startups grow their business, and Techweek is proud to help in this goal.
“We are looking forward to hearing from some exciting new companies in Chicago during Techweek,” said Sateesh Srinivasan, Director of Amazon Launchpad.
“Our mission is to discover the latest innovations and make them available to customers through the Amazon Launchpad program. We can’t wait to see who comes to compete in Techweek’s LAUNCH.”
