NEW CONTENTS

LAUNCHPAD SEED 23W has prepared four new contents to "maximize value delivery to seed entrepreneurs and investors". Each of the contents is a unique IVS project that requires the cooperation of all participants. Through these new contents, we will provide a place where investors and seed entrepreneurs can have a solid business meeting and pursue real benefits.

Exhibition Pitch

Pitching opportunities are available for non-LAUNCHPAD speakers as well.Not only startups, but also VCs, angel investors, and accelerators are welcome to pitch. You can watch startups with funding needs pitch and VCs, angel investors, and accelerators reverse pitch up close and personal.

Accelerland

The plan is to set up a simple booth to explain directly to startups about the accelerator programs developed by each company.On the day of the event, we plan to offer consultations about the programs and some of the content of the experience. You can find a program that fits your company's phase and business.

Investor Wall-to-Wall Street
Supported by StartPass

This is a project where startup entrepreneurs wall-to-wall with VC and angel investors on a 1-on-1 basis about their business. Entrepreneurs explain their business and receive feedback from investors.
The VC partners will be the wall-ball-ball-ball-ball-ball-ball players. This is a unique opportunity for entrepreneurs to directly connect with investors.

LAUNCHPAD SEED Live Commentary 

This is a project to watch LAUNCHPAD SEED like a public viewing while listening to commentary by investors. You can learn the real voices and thoughts of investors.
