To be on Launch! it must be the first time a company has demoed at a conference, and the product must either be coming out soon or have been in very limited beta to this point. During 2010 we saw some larger, better funded companies on Launch! but everyone’s had to compete to get on and there are some teeny startups here that you’ve never heard of that might just blow you away. It’s 10 continuous 4 minute demos, and the winner gets a mainstage spot the following year, not to mention bragging rights. Who wins? You decide.
