What are we looking for?

Round 1: Applications will be marked based on the level of innovation/potential impact of the idea; the strength of the team to bring the idea forward over the summer; the feasibility of the plan outlined; the coachability of the team, and the suitability of LaunchBox to the idea.
Round 2: Successful applications will make it into Round 2 of the LaunchBox process, and teams will be asked to submit a 1 minute video pitch about their idea. We are looking for innovation, creativity, and your ability to ‘sell’ your idea to us with this video.
Final Round: Successful teams from Round 2 will participate in a Pitch Event on February 27 where a panel of experienced judges will decide which startups will get onto the 2020 programme.
