What is CodeLaunch?
Produced by Improving CodeLaunch is a combination of a seed accelerator competition, tech tradeshow, startup conference, and raucous networking event! CodeLaunch sponsors and partners put thousands of dollars in professional seed services behind the winners of its national seed accelerator competition.
CodeLaunch was founded in 2011 when it was known as the “Code Authority App Idea Competition”. Jason W. Taylor, CodeLaunch Founder and President, wanted to help startups gain traction in the tech industry, and with Code Authority’s (now Improving Frisco) resources, he made it happen.
CodeLaunch has evolved into a traveling seed accelerator and startup expo. The first CodeLaunch event held outside of DFW was CodeLaunch ATL 2021, which took place on August 18th, 2021. It was a huge success too!
What makes CodeLaunch truly unique is the professional hackathon. Local “dev shops” come together to build out as much of each Finalists’ MVP as possible. The Finalists then demo these products live and for the first time in front of the CodeLaunch audience, who then vote for a winner. CodeLaunch DFW 2021 hackathon teams are provided by Dialexa, Improving Dallas, and Code Authority.
CodeLaunch is aligned with the ideals of conscious capitalism, believing that business can be socially responsible and, ultimately, ethically good. One of the ways CodeLaunch exemplifies this philosophy is by making the competition free to apply with no equity surrendered by the applicants. This means startups have nothing to lose and everything to gain by applying. In addition, CodeLaunch gives away surplus exhibitor space to local startups for free, allowing them to network with angels and investors.
CodeLaunch wouldn’t be what it is without its sponsors. CodeLaunch DFW 2021 sponsors and community partners include:
- Founder Institute
- Credit Union of Texas
- Loomis Agency
- Capital Factory
- Tech Wildcatters
- The DEC Network
- Beam Angel Network
- Frisco EDC
