ACA Angel University at The Big Launch Challenge   

North Carolina Biotechnology Center, Durham, NC
The goal of the Big Launch Challenge is to provide early-stage startups the opportunity to pitch to investors, and for The Launch Place Pre-Seed and Seed Fund to generate deal flow. Every year it is a different experience, with different business ideas and founding teams. The Launch Place has awarded $159,000 to 14 companies in the competition’s 9-year history. The majority of winners have gone on to raise additional investment and build successful companies. VitalFlo , a rapidly growing company providing respiratory data, analysis, and care, is a great example of the impact of this program. The organization strives to foster an environment for new and serial entrepreneurs in which they can raise capital and have access to support services they need to take their products and solutions into the marketplace.
