Launch48 Conference is a unique conference experience designed to rapidly introduce attendees to a broad range of speakers.
There are 2 key elements that differentiate Launch48 Conferences:
* Rapid, short-format 15 minute presentations from a range of excellent speakers
* The opportunity to interact with the speakers during Launch48 Weekend as many speakers will also mentor
We believe these elements help Launch48 event to engage with the audience, and keep attendees engaged.
The Launch48 Weekend is about building web businesses with a group of people from a range of backgrounds and different sets of skills.
The Launch48 Weekend is different from most hack-days and entrepreneurial events because:
1) We have a great set of mentors that work with groups to develop their web business
2) Each team has 20 to 25 people working on each idea from a broad range of backgrounds
3) Participants meet, learn from, and work with many people throughout the event
4) All aspects of a business are covered including planning, marketing, PR, branding, design, finance, and development
The format of the event is (when run over a weekend, time dependent on venue):
Friday evening from 6:00 pm – registration, pitching begins, web business ideas are selected by the participants, and groups are formed
Saturday from 9 am to 9 pm – work begins on the web businesses, mentors work with groups
Sunday from 9 am to 9 pm – work continues, web businesses are launched and presented, networking dinner for all participants held from 7 pm
