Launchpad, Falmouth University

Start-ups with a Market
Launchpad forms elite teams to create high-tech, success driven start-ups that work alongside strategic partners to develop market led solutions.


When you join Launchpad, you will be placed into a team of four. Your team will be made up of people with complementary skills and personalities, specifically designed to be able to form a high-performance team. Your team will be presented with three challenges. Each of these challenges represents a market opportunity; over the course of three months you will choose which challenge to take on.

In the next phase, you will build the prototype, or minimum viable product, to demonstrate that your solution will work. Alongside the development of the product your business will continue to take shape, with the crafting of investor pitches and the initiation of key commercial relationships. This phase lasts around 8 months.

Finally, you will reach the point where you start to negotiate in earnest with potential investors to accelerate the growth of the company.

Through the incubation process Falmouth Business School trains every founder with an MA in Entrepreneurship, equipping you for your start-up journey.


In the second year you will finalise investment plans, and the acceleration phase will begin. Launchpad companies are supplied with general infrastructure for the first year following incorporation, consisting of space in the Launchpad building, along with the attendant office facilities. During this time and afterwards, Falmouth University remains an active investor in your company.
