Earlier this year, the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama announced their selection of ten finalists who would be competing in the first Cycle of Alabama Launchpad in 2021. In case you didn’t know, Alabama Launchpad is the state’s most active early-stage seed fund investor. In fact, the program has invested more than $5.6M in 100+ startups from across the state—helping to turn great ideas into powerful companies that make our state better as a whole.
This year, Alabama Launchpad implemented several changes to the program, in order to provide even more value to all participating startups. During the program, each participant works closely with hand-picked Launch Advisors—experienced mentors with decades of experience—to transform their ideas into viable companies. The program culminates in a 2-day pitch competition, where Concept-stage winners walk away with $25K in funding & Seed-stage winners are awarded $50K.
Now, let’s meet Alabama Launchpad’s first two winners of 2021.
