48Hour Launch is coming and it is 3 times more powerful than before! We have 3 different startup paths and 3 different prize packages worth $30,000! There are 3’s everywhere! It’s like “double your money, double your fun” except it’s triple your money, triple your fun!

To celebrate 48Hour Launch, and the number three, we are going to bring you 3 blogs, one for each startup path.

So, let’s start with the 3rd path, just to keep things consistent. Besides, I don’t know about you, but I countdown from 3 every time I countdown to awesome!

The 3rd startup path at this month’s event is the product path. This is for those of you who have a physical product ready to take to market and a need for a web presence to really rock the party. Bring that bit of genius to our pre-pitch night on… NOVEMBER. 3RD!!! DUN DUN DUN! You guys will have designers, web developers, programmers, marketers, etc., etc. with eyes and ears open who are ready to help you unleash your product on the interwebs and then help you take over the world!


(Disclaimer: Taking over the world is outside the scope of 48Hour Launch. The Company Lab and all sponsors accept no responsibility for world domination resulting from activities taking place at 48Hour Launch)


On Nov. 11 (yes, 11.11.11, I know what you’re thinking… we are clever), you guys will pitch again, to a larger group of people, all wanting to be a part of your greatness. Then it’s a 48Hour entrepreneur paaaaaaah-taaayy!

By Sunday night you will have completed your mission to announce and sell the second coming of sliced bread. The summation of the snacks, coffee, drafts, brain storms, edits, and “Ah-Ha” moments will be judged by the audience through text voting based on the following criteria:

  • a working prototype of the product
  • the ability to sell your product and receive payment

The winner will get:

10 hours of legal services from Chambliss, Bahner, & Stophel
10 hours of financial services from Henderson Hutcherson & McCullough
hosting/server space/email marketing package from Airnet
branding design from Area 203 Digital
A one year membership to the CRMA
YPAC Bronze Sponsor status

Then the rest, as they say, is history and everyone there will get to say “I knew that person when…”!

Are you ready to GET STARTED?
