We open the event with our Pitch Day competition where five competitors will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges. After the winners are selected, the Startup Expo begins. At the Startup Expo, you can network with investors, venture capitalists, and the entrepreneurial community. Winners also have the potential to earn thousands of dollars in seed services. Learn more about the previous CodeLaunch winners and awarded seed services on our History Page.
Five competitors will present their ideas to a panel of judges, during a five-minute pitch. After the presentations, a brief recess will be taken by the judges to determine the winners.
The Startup Expo is an event designed to get CodeLaunch attendees in front of investors, business owners, and entrepreneurial community. CodeLaunch sponsors will also have tables demonstrating the newest and hottest emerging technologies.
A panel of five judges will select categorical and overall winners based on financial potential, creativity, and concept feasibility.
Code Authority and Improving's teams of software engineers will each engage in a three-day hackathon on behalf of the two winners' product concepts on August 1st-3rd at the Code Authority headquarters in Frisco, TX, and the Improving office in Plano, TX. Both teams will be dedicated to creating and building well-architected code whether that be a POC or progress toward an MVP. Winners and finalists will also benefit from services-in-kind provided by select CodeLaunch sponsors, as well as a chance to establish a partnership with Code Authority in the weeks that follow the event.
