Event Summary

About Event

​Venture Mechanics' first ever, LaunchPad Expo features the top six venture-grade startups in the incubator each quarter. Each of these companies is raising either a seed stage, convertible note, or their first institutional financing round. The companies will have been highly vetted by our mentors (the "venture mechanics"), with the six finalists receiving substantial coaching on refining their business model and pitching skills.

The Panelists:

​Our distinguished panelists for the Q4'2023 cohort includes:

Jeff Canin

​Co-Manager at Element 8 Venture Fund; Investor-in-Residence at the Clean Energy Institute

Cliff Monlux

​Founder, Managing Partner at Ramp Equity Partners & Ramp Catalyst

Mark Mueller-Eberstein

​Serial entrepreneur, author, academic, and experienced investor; representing the Alliance of Angels (AoA)

Patrick Lowndes

​Serial entrepreneur and experience angel investors; General Partner of Prota Ventures pre-seed fund

​Please note that this event is for accredited investors only.


​The event will begin at 1:30pm on Nov 7th and run until 6pm. Afterparty will follow for those who want to continue to hang out with the other attendees or spend more time with the startup founders.

​Beginning in the Leonardo Room at 2pm sharp, each of the presenting companies will have 12 minutes to pitch, 8 minutes of Q&A with the panelists, and 8 minutes of Q&A with the audience.

​At the end of the presentation we will be using our sponsor Votegrity's innovative vote-taking system to let the audience choose their pick for the company most likely to succeed. Over $2000 in prizes will be rewarding to the winning company!

​Following the pitches there'll be a reception in the Boeing Room where the startups will each have a demo table.

​Sponsorships are still available for this event.
