It’s been a whirlwind three days. Over 9,000 people registered for the 2014 LAUNCH Festival, dozens of companies pitched their products in the Demo Pit, speakers went deep on their strategies at the Startup Stage. We saw 3D printed heart tissue on stage. LAUNCH Founder Jason Calacanis danced to Gangnam Style for a product demo. A pocket drone buzzed the audience (no one was harmed, thankfully). And 40 companies launched on stage.
We’re so proud of everyone who participated in our competition and Hackathon, and thankful to our keynote speakers: Travis Kalanick of Uber, Paul Graham of Y Combinator, Yves Béhar of fuseproject, and Mark Cuban.
