Tech City Launchpad: one year on

Tech City Launchpad: one year on

07 Sep 2012

In summer 2011 we ran the Tech City Launchpad competition, to stimulate innovation in the vibrant cluster of small digital businesses around Shoreditch in London. The competition attracted over 200 applications from SMEs for innovative projects in the digital space.

Gaining investment was a key focus of the competition. We invited 40 of the best projects to a day-long investor pitching workshop, and decided to fund 18 of these projects ourselves for up to £100,000 each – conditional on securing private sector funding to match.

So, one year later, how have these 18 projects fared? Most have already gained funding, and some have already completed their projects with considerable success.
