Business Accelerator

The TechLaunch Business Accelerator program is aimed at serious, early stage startup companies with high growth potential, an experienced team, a demonstrated Product or Service, and generating revenue. We’re looking for tech startups with:

  • A founding team with experience, complementary skills and aligned vision.
  • An investment of at least 6-12 months of “sweat equity” and seed capital upwards of $50K.
  • Trailing revenue of greater than $50,000.
  • Efforts to raise $50K to $500K in additional seed capital to grow your business to the next stage.
  • Ability to be coached and mentored.
  • Investor type Pitch Deck ready for review.

Rolling applications are now open for the TechLaunch Business Accelerator- culminating at BullPen – the quarterly pitch event similar to “Shark Tank” – a perfect way to get priceless advice and mentoring, as well as the attention of investors, all while your early stage tech company prepares for growth.

The program focuses on the PITCH as the way to help build and grow your business. Interested companies apply and the TechLaunch team reviews these applications.

Selected companies are mentored and the most promising 3 tech ventures are invited to pitch before a panel of investors and entrepreneurs as well as a live audience. Presenting Companies will get plenty of real time feedback on their pitch and business. After a team presents, they may continue to partner with a TechLaunch mentor to help in those areas where assistance is needed. Simple!

Valuable in-kind services and guaranteed spots to present at a Jumpstart NJ Angel Network meeting and a TechCouncil Ventures meeting are awarded to the presenting company who the Investor Panel feels is the most fundable moving forward. The Investor Panel award is worth $15,000 in professional in-kind services from our supporting business community, including Gibbons Law, WithumGearhart Law, and Casabona Ventures.
