TechLaunch Announces Open Applications for 2014 LaunchPad 3

Montclair, New Jersey – November 7, 2013:  It’s time once again for tech entrepreneurs to transform their visions into reality at New Jersey’s premier technology accelerator.  TechLaunch will begin accepting applications on Friday, November 15 for LaunchPad 3, a 16-week bootcamp-style business training program for 10 -12 tech startups, to be held just off the campus of Montclair State University.

Since its 2012 inaugural session, New Jersey’s tech accelerator has graduated 19 startups who now form the TechLaunch alumni community, with several teams having secured follow-on funding and who still maintain an active presence in and around the accelerator’s landscape. TechLaunch Founder, Mario Casabona, commented, “having just come off an exciting 2013 Demo Day event, our commitment is stronger than ever to identify the most deserving and viable new companies and teams to participate in the 2014 LaunchPad 3.”

TechLaunch is looking for awesome ideas and companies which are tech-oriented, including web tech, mobile, and hardware, with core founding teams already in place. The rigorous selection process will take place over a period of several weeks, and additional details can be found at TechLaunch. Interested individuals can sign up at Apply to be notified when the application form goes live on November 15.

During the 16-week LaunchPad 3 program, Founders will work alongside some of the most promising tech startups in the world with help from more than 120 active Mentors, as well as a large network of Investors and strategic Business Partners.  You can learn more about the TechLaunch experience from previous LaunchPad Founders Testimonials or you can meet some of them in person at upcoming tech events including the Morris Tech Meetup on November 12 and Jersey Shore Tech Meetup on December 10.

Think you have a great idea and a team that has what it takes? Whether you are already in revenue with an established product or the concept is still hatching in your own, private cerebral cloud, TechLaunch can give your company the boost it needs. Passion wanted!
