Six companies named finalists in Alabama Launchpad
Birmingham, AL, Oct. 22 -- Six companies are advancing as finalists in the Alabama Launchpad Startup Competition. The Economic Development Partnership of Alabama, which sponsors Launchpad, announced the six early-stage companies that will make their final pitches at the Alabama Launchpad Startup Competition in Fort Payne, Alabama on Nov 14.
The startups are competing along two tracks: concept stage for entrepreneurs launching businesses and seed stage for businesses accelerating growth.
A judging panel comprised of five individuals representing investors, entrepreneurs, and corporate stakeholders from across the state selected six early-stage startups to compete in the Alabama Launchpad Startup Competition Finale.
The six finalists will make their pitches before the judges at the competition finale on Nov. 14 at 4 p.m. at the DeKalb Theatre in Fort Payne, Alabama. The judges will select a concept startup winner to win a $50,000 cash prize and a seed winner to receive a $100,000 cash prize.
