Subject: $5 Billion in Product Launches in Five Years
We are 86 days out from the LAUNCH Festival on March 7th and 8th, where 2,000 folks will come see about 40 amazing new products debut on stage.
And I want you to launch something awesome (or at least join us and be inspired)!
This is the fifth year I've hosted a LAUNCH event. Wow.
Dropbox, Mint, Yammer, ZocDoc, FitBit, TripIt, Red Beacon, Room77 and Powerset are among the amazing companies that I've been privileged to coach in rehearsals.
Those companies combined have a market cap of over $5B now.
In only five years!
Of course we can't take any credit for their success. They would have their success with or without the help of the conference, but my team is so proud to have played a tiny role in helping these juggernauts launch!
Now we're looking for the next 40 companies to make the debut… and I'm hoping you're one of them!
There is a rolling application process. This means we look at applications as they come in. Apply here: http://launch.producteev.com/home.php
