CodeLaunch MINN 2024 PCL Teams

Six powerhouse IT consulting companies including Contollo, FYC Labs, PS-AI, and Improving have assembled teams to join this competition, partnering with a finalist to propel their products before the grand showcase event. Each team dedicates their expertise at no cost to the startup. While they’ll engage in friendly competition with other IT consulting brands at CodeLaunch, they’ll unite under a singular mission: to turn the dreams of startup founders into reality!

Contollo was the first PCL team to jump on board for this event. With unbridled enthusiasm, their team is geared up to compete once again.

Contollo has been on a remarkable journey with CodeLaunch events, witnessing their evolution from early-stage contests to thriving industry hubs. Over time, we’ve seen contestants secure investments and find their product-market fit, resulting in positive revenue streams. Our participation in these events has not only created key long-term partnerships and relationships that have led to our robust growth here at Contollo, but has also provided invaluable learning experiences from industry experts. Being part of the CodeLaunch community means accessing continuous support for business growth, aligning with conscious capitalism principles, and unlocking endless opportunities for collaboration.

Virtual collaboration reduces or removes the need for pet owners to travel to a specialty clinic for expensive in-person visits that can be solved virtually.

I think it’s really exciting. It was a lot of work, and a lot of valuable work, putting all our focus and energy on commcommunicating our product and putting together a plan on how we can really accelerate things. It’s been super fun and valuable.

Caleb VanDeman, VSOD.io Founder

The broad purpose of Hair Hub is to serve as a comprehensive digital ecosystem dedicated to celebrating, educating, and empowering Black hair care.

Sabrina Rucker, StoryForge Founder

SayKid combines voice tech and tangible play to help kids learn in an actively engaging way – without screens.

I’m super excited to be a CodeLaunch finalist. One of the things I love about CodeLaunch is that you realize that there’s a lot of goodness happening in Minnesota that I think some other folks don’t outside of the Midwest. And they see that, and they expect us to go big and that’s what we’re here to do and we appreciate the help.
