How we select participants:

NB. There is no maximum or minimum number of founders per team however we prefer small teams over individuals as most successful startups have a few founders. The Launch accelerator programme is open to men and women alike and we are strongly encouraging women to apply. Women are 49.59% of the world’s population so women should launch 49.59% of the startups.
