Launch Fest is a conference with a dual mission:
1) Inspire and prepare the next generation of founders (morning)
2) Get early-stage NOLA startups in front of angels & VC’s (afternoon)
Last year at Launch Fest, Barrett Conrad was sitting in the audience watching the speakers talk about lean startup strategies and listening to the pitches by the 2011 Launch Pad Ignition founders. He had been the first tech lead on Jen Medberry’s startup, Kickboard, so he knew what it took to build a successful product. He thought to himself "I should be up there next year."
Inspired by Launch Fest he applied to Launch Pad Ignition last fall, and on May 3rd Barrett will be onstage pitching Red Ticket Games, his new social gaming startup with his first app, Expert Trivia in the app store.
What a difference a year makes.
What will you be doing a year from now? Come to Launch Fest May 3rd and get inspired to achieve what you’ve always dreamed of doing!
