LAUNCH is all about giving pre-start or new (up to 24 months trading) enterprises an opportunity to pitch their business and get a real boost – think Dragons Den without the Dragons. We have an exciting investment package available from our sponsors for the business or idea that best demonstrates why they deserve to walk away with the prize worth over £6,000.

Not only that: imagine the publicity and exposure you gain by pitching to a specially invited audience of key influencers from across the Somerset business community; can you put a value on that?

We’re looking for creativity, innovation, determination and belief from people who recognise this incredible opportunity to LAUNCH to success!
