CodeLaunch helps early-stage startups succeed using our unique spin on the seed accelerator model. It’s a combination of a seed accelerator competition, a tech tradeshow, a startup conference, and a rousing networking event. The touring competition has given more than $1.6M in services to its finalists and overall winners since it started a decade ago. 

“CodeLaunch is a startup and rock-n-roll show like nothing you’ve ever seen before!”

– CodeLaunch President and Founder Jason W. Taylor  

CodeLaunch has helped launch noteworthy startups since its inception in North Texas in 2013. Companies like CharaChorder, ProsRent, StyleRow, KidStrong, Autix, Evva Health, and more were launched and accelerated through the competition. 

CodeLaunch ATL 2023 will be held at the Buckhead Theatre. The six professional hackathon teams will be provided by these leading software consulting brands: 

CodeLaunch ATL 2023 Finalists 

One of our finalists, Timothy Butler, tells us this is his second time applying for CodeLaunch.

“After failing to make the top draft as a semifinalist in CodeLaunch Houston, I drove overnight from Tulsa to Houston on a shoestring budget, even sleeping in my car, to exhibit and learn. When I arrived at the event, I saw rich opportunities in Houston for Atlanta and then pursued it alongside my team.

The FundHub founder says he looks forward to continuing his startup’s work of shrinking the wealth gap and providing for-profit and nonprofit founders access to grant funding so they can transform their respective communities.

“At CodeLaunch Atlanta, we look forward to the chance to: compete for cash and in-kind services, create awareness of FundHub on a larger scale, build critical tech for our platform, connect with VCs, ecosystems, fellow founders, and networks in need of our grant services, and recruit beta testers for our platform.”

CodeLaunch ATL 2021 Success Stories 

CodeLaunch ATL 2021 winner, Evva Health, has passed a lot of milestones since then. Founder Carl Hanna tells us their equity crowdfunding was successful, as they raised a quarter of a million dollars. Evva Health’s next goal: product launch. 

“When you interact with anyone at CodeLaunch, you can tell they care and are passionate about helping startups. We are gearing up for our product launch hopefully in Q2, and CodeLaunch gave us the boost we needed to get here.”

– Carl Hanna, Evva Health Founder

Contract Sprint Chief Visionary, Jonathan Page, will be a judge for CodeLaunch ATL 2023. Contract Sprint is also a sponsor of the competition.

“We are thrilled and eagerly anticipating the upcoming CodeLaunch event that we have proudly sponsored. It is an honor to be a part of this community and we can’t wait to see the amazing things that will come from it.” 

– Jonathan Page, Contract Sprint Chief Visionary

Another great sponsor and supporter of CodeLaunch is Dell for Startups. The team is delighted about the opportunity to partner once again for this event. 

“We are constantly incorporating new partners that get us in front of entrepreneurs and create relationships. CodeLaunch is exactly the type of partner we want, and we are very excited to participate in the Atlanta CodeLaunch competition.”

– Lucas Chaya del Pino, Head of Dell for Startups 

Cyrannus 150K Investment Challenge 

All startup founders who advance to the semifinal round of CodeLaunch will be in the running for the Cyrannus $100K investment challenge, as well as the $50K challenge for Impact Startups! 

Founder of Cyrannus.io and Judge at CodeLaunch Ohio 2022, Lee Mosbacker announcing the CodeLaunch & Cyrannus $100k Challenge.

Cyrannus Founder Lee Mosbacker wants to reward CodeLaunch participants with the opportunity to get real cash into their business. A Cyrannus spokesperson says there could be two separate winners, but if one winner scored the highest for both challenges, they can receive $150K in investments in total.   

“Not only will they get the cash, but also be introduced to a network that will help them refine their idea and get ready for their first big fundraiser.”

– Lee Mosbacker, Cyrannus Founder
