At the Web 2.0 Conference, we have a feature called the Launch Pad, which is the opportunity for a new company to make their debut. This year, John Battelle, the program chair for the Web 2.0 Conference, has recruited a stellar team to help us winnow through the companies applying to be featured. It includes VCs, M&A strategists from some of the major companies in the Web 2.0 talent hunt, and a couple of Web 2.0 pundits (besides me and John, that is), so it’s a great opportunity to get some exposure, even if you don’t get selected for one of the Launch Pad slots. For a complete list of the Launch Pad advisory board, and more details, see John’s posting, Help us find the companies that will launch at Web 2.0.
We have more than a hundred submissions already, competing for a dozen or so slots on the conference program, but there are so many interesting new companies popping up that we could easily miss some really interesting ones. So, like John, I’m asking you to let us know if you want to be considered for the Launch Pad at Web 2.0.
