Thank you for supporting the startup community!

The winners have been announced!

Launch Party is teaming up with Dealmaker Media and influencers across Canada to host Launch @ GROW (#lpgrow) on August 17th, 2011. And we are looking for 15 of the hottest Canadian tech startups from BC to NL to SHOWOFF at the opening reception. That night, FOUR startups will win the chance to pitch live on stage at the full day GROW conference on August 18, 2011.

In order to be considered, you must:

  • Have launched within the past 12-18 months or plan to launch at GROW
  • Have a demo or live site for voters and judges to view
  • Startups that have previously demoed at Launch Party events can still enter Launch @ GROW
  • The 4 finalists must be registered to attend GROW Conference on August 18th in order to be eligible to pitch live on stage.

Nominate Your Startup
Startups must upload a video, two-minutes or less with a description of their company no later than June 30. Be sure to select the Region closest to you for voting purposes.

Rock the Vote
When the nomination round ends, the voting begins. It’s time to call your friends, family and everyone in your local tech community to get out and vote for you because the 25 startups with the highest ranking will move on to the semi-finals.

The Semi-Finals
We have invited the best judges from Canada and Silicon Valley to review and rank the top 25 startups. Our judges get pitched everyday - in coffee shops, airports, and big shiny board rooms and can spot a winner when they see one. So, you’d better nail your pitch and stand out if you want to be selected as one of 15 startups to headline at Launch @ GROW.

Pitch Live On Stage At the GROW 2011 CONFERENCE
4 of the 15 startups will be chosen during Launch @ GROW to pitch their company LIVE on stage for Day 2 of the GROW Conference.
