Launch Party 5 Startup Contest

Launch Party Vancouver 5 is hosting a start-up contest sponsored by Bootup Labs and Fasken Martineau. The contest is open to LPV featured companies only and will go live the morning of September 18.

All it takes is an entrepreneur + Macbook/webcam, clearly communicating what their start-up does and how far they will go to make their company succeed in a 90 second or less video clip. The videos will be judged, not for their production value or the quality of their pitch but on whether or not the panel of experts believes the idea has the legs to go the long haul.

Bootup Labs is putting up a $1000 lunch money (cash) as the grand prize, which will be awarded to the start-up deemed “Most Likely to Succeed” by our esteemed panel of judges including:

And the People’s Choice, chosen by YOU, will win box seats to a Giants game courtesy of Fasken Martineau.

So, be sure to stop by to pick your favorite on the 18th and come by LPV5 at Unwine’d, 1180 Howe Street to meet the founders behind the ideas. The party starts @ 5:30pm.

    It’s the ex-VC in me, but I hope you mean 90 SECOND or less video clip. 90 minutes of a bad pitch is very very bad.

    Looking forward to the madness …

    I was going to ask ‘which Giants’ (New York? Jolly Green?), but then I watched the video. Carry on.
