Werx was very excited to host Code Authority who announced this years CodeLaunch App Challenge and shared the details of the upcoming 2015 competition!
Beginning in June applicant concepts are narrowed down through several rounds of "cuts". Semi-finalists are interviewed and analyzed more thoroughly. Ultimately a handful of "finalists" are selected to give their pitches on CodeLaunch Pitch Day. This year the event will be on August 13th. Pitch Day is an open event that investors of all types and backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
CodeLaunch recently celebrated the first "exit" in its five year history when 2013 winner RentEval was acquired by Rapoport Investments, LP in March, and subsequently accepted into Tech Wildcatters.
Can't wait to hear about the finalists announced this year in August!
