Launchable is an event series designed to facilitate the creation of innovative, venture-scale startups. Our upcoming event is focused on tooling and applications ideas that leverage foundation models in new and creative ways, as explored in Madrona’s recent post Foundation Models: The Future (Still) Isn’t Happening Fast Enough.
Join us to build and advance your idea, learn from experienced operators and expert mentors, and pitch to a panel of VC judges. There are two ways to participate: 1) as a team, or 2) as an individual with an idea and/or eagerness to join a team.
Launchable includes a series of presentations from industry experts, discussions and networking, and time to work with your team to develop the idea, business model, prototype and final pitch.
We are looking for participants with varying backgrounds, including business, software development, product, and design. We hope to see foundation model concepts spanning media, climate, health care, gaming, etc. No prior foundation models knowledge required. The event fee is $75 for applicants who are accepted.
