How will "LAUNCH" offer YOU something dramatically different?

And by YOU we mean YOU people in growing #tech businesses...

· LAUNCH,Technology,Manchester

At LAUNCH we are looking to be The New Playground For Growing Tech Businesses. 

Not just Manchester and Media City where we are based, but in the whole of the UK. We want to be THE place for clever tech dev teams, like yours, to come and BUILD, PROVE and TEST their MVP's for the #VR/AR, #IoT and #Healthtech spaces. Technologies and industries that will change the way we live our lives today for years to come.

So we are offering something truly different at LAUNCH with a new idea for tech teams based on The Lean Startup model. Lean startup is a method for developing businesses and products first proposed in 2008 by Eric Ries.* 

What we want to do at LAUNCH is to take this model into the world of high tech high growth companies offering them a new way of supporting their tech MVP’s.

We are offering space and support around three key phases:


BUILD £1999 for a year tenancy.

For tech teams who need time to build their MVP's, test some theories, use our support technologies and create something special. 

PROVE £999 for a 6 month learning period.

For tech teams that have grown and now need to test their built MVP with real people and move beyond your build phrase. 

TEST £499 for 3 months to get investor ready.

Already got your MVP into the market place but need to prove it for investors and show you are investor ready. Then this is for you. 

All the above is at a discounted rate from the normal £199 a month when you sign up for to build, prove or test your team’s tech idea. 

Why would we do this?

We did this as LAUNCH is something new. Not a place for startups but a place for tech companies that want to build, test and prove their MVP's. So they can get into the hearts and minds of investors and the market place quickly. 

This is the new place to LAUNCH. But what do you get as standard?  With our monthly £199 a month package you still get more.

Can we be part of your investor ready journey?


* Based on his previous experience working in several U.S. startups, Ries claims that startups can shorten their product development cycles by adopting a combination of business-hypothesis-driven experimentation, iterative product releases, and what he calls validated learning

Ries' overall claim is that if startups invest their time into iteratively building products or services to meet the needs of early customers, they can reduce the market risks and sidestep the need for large amounts of initial project funding and expensive product launches and failures.
