Launch Pad Request and invitation
 
 

Seeds of Opportunity

One of the strengths of Web 2.0 is the startup—a new company that bursts onto the scene with an innovative and promising new technology or business model. This year more then 200 companies petitioned the conference chair for the opportunity to launch their new product onstage at Web 2.0. Of course we couldn't accomodate everyone, but the most interesting of the bunch--thirteen in all--will be featured in this special Launch Pad Workshop, where entrepreneurs will debut their companies or launch new products. It all happens Tuesday, November 7 at 2:00pm and is open to all attendees and press.

Launch Pad is Sponsored by

2006 Launch Pad Advisory Board

Final determination of Launch Pad companies was made by John Battelle, Web 2.0's Executive Producer, in concert with an advisory board of noted entrepreneurs, VCs, and industry analysts.
