CodeLaunch is a startup accelerator event that pairs early-stage tech startups with professional software development teams to accelerate their trajectory toward MVP, seed funding, and beyond.
CodeLaunch is the perfect opportunity for first-time startup founders, both technical and non-technical alike, as the startup competition costs $0 to apply and no equity is surrendered.
After establishing a history of successfully accelerating startups as an annual event in North Texas (2012-2020), CodeLaunch expanded to multiple events per year beginning in 2021. Each event will be hosted in a market with an Improving consulting office.
CodeLaunch Startup Competition is produced by Improving and is driven by the principles of Conscious Capitalism.
CodeLaunch provides seed services that are invaluable to early-stage startups. Sponsors and partners help guide winning startup ventures down the path of success while minimizing their financial risk.
Here’s why CodeLaunch is a remarkable opportunity:
