About this event

A grand total of $75,000 is at stake for six concept stage and five seed stage finalists, chosen from startups across Alabama.

Over the past few weeks, 11 startup finalists were chosen to compete for Alabama Launchpad's Cycle 2 2022. These companies have learned from and worked alongside an all-star lineup of Launch Advisors to carefully craft their pitch, further product development and elevate their companies.

Now, it's time for the finale. It all comes down to this. Each company will take the big stage to prove its growth in front of the deciding panel of judges. Ready to watch these companies showcase their startups and all they have to offer? It's all taking place at the Alabama Launchpad Cycle 2 2022 finale.

Alabama Launchpad helps high-growth companies start, stay and grow in Alabama while supporting, advocating and recognizing entrepreneurship statewide. Alabama Launchpad is a program of the Economic Development Partnership of Alabama.
