Launch Pad is coming to San Francisco!

Get ready - the fame and the glory that is Enterprise 2.0 Launch Pad is coming to the West Coast.If you are an Enterprise 2.0 start-up with a compelling tool or an existing company with a new application, we want to hear about it. Enterprise 2.0 Launch Pad is an incredible opportunity for companies to present to the Enterprise 2.0 community from the main stage and win a complimentary exhibition pod on the show floor.How does it work? We'll have 3 rounds to whittle down entrants to our four finalists.

  • Round 1. Twitter Pitch: E2 staff narrow down the field of entrants to 16 quarter-finalists.
  • Round 2. One Minute Video: A round of voting by the E2 community to select 8 semi-finalists.
  • Round 3.Three Minute Video: A round of voting by the E2 community to select our 4 Launch Pad finalists.
Those 4 finalists will be announced in early November and will asked to give a 5 minute demonstrate of their applications live on the keynote stage at the Enterprise 2.0 Conference in San Francisco, CA on November 2-5. The winner will be chosen by live conference attendees after the four finalists deliver their demo. Start perfecting those 140 characters and stay tuned for the official Launch Pad Twitter hash tag and website - we'll open up Round 1's Twitter pitch on Friday, August 28.
