Designed to support promising early-stage companies, the Emerging Business Award includes a $10,000 grant plus an additional $10,000 worth of in-kind marketing, business development, and public relations services.
This year has been an amazing year for navigatER and the LaunchPad resources had a lot to do with it. The funds were essential, but the support was priceless.
DO YOU HAVE AN
Our panel of independent judges, having selected LaunchPad’s five principal finalists, selects an additional set of five finalists from all remaining applicants to compete for the Emerging Business Award. No separate application is required! Emerging Business finalists submit 60-second video pitches to be shown at the live LaunchPad event. The winner of our Emerging Business Award is announced that evening.
Special thanks to our Emerging Business Award partners:
“I feel like I won the better prize [than the $50,000]! The timing was perfect because my business was positioned well for in-depth brand and marketing discussions, and we needed a website.”
