Why CodeLaunch?

CodeLaunch Pitch Day is attended by investors, developers, and members of the start-up community who are capable of seeding finalists with capital or other services. Competitors who advance will receive benefits at every stage of advancement. Such accolades may help competitors by recognizing their achievements in the CodeLaunch process.

We also want to protect your intellectual property. Each application includes an NDA with Code Authority. Competitors are not required to reveal their “secret sauce” during their pitch upon reaching the finals. The ceremonial judges will collectively assign awards after the finalist pitches. Award winners will receive awards and digital collateral which add legitimacy to their start-up resume and can open new avenues for funding.

Best Pitch Presentation:

Awarded regardless of other variables or attributes, strictly on the polish and communication effectiveness.

Most Financial Potential:

Awarded to the idea which seems to have the most money to gain in a best case outcome scenario.

Most Creative Idea:

Awarded to the concept with the most intriguing creativity and inventiveness.

//Overall Winner

Code Authority will choose one or more competitors who are designated as “Overall Winners” at the Pitch Day Event. Winner(s) MVP (minimally viable product) will be the focus of a two-day hackathon run by the Code Authority team. This “CodeAuthon” will be two days after the event on August 11-13. Subsequent to the MVP CodeAuthon, startup groups may receive a customized partnership with Code Authority to continue product development.

This partnership will include a collection of services in exchange for a minority stake in the start-up. If an agreement is reached between the parties, these winners will benefit from a significant amount of custom software design, development, and/or website development and hosting services. Code Authority will become a long-term partner and investor in these startups.


Startups are not required to pay or surrender equity to enter, compete, win, or receive the MVP hackathon benefit.
