Applications Open for CodeLaunch Seed Accelerator

Judges will look at creativity, financial potential, and the feasibility of each concept presented. Entries can be submitted through May 31.


Code Authority is looking to turn entrepreneurs’ ideas into reality in its annual seed accelerator competition. 

The Frisco-based software firm is accepting applications through May 31 for CodeLaunch. Code Authority has hosted the seed accelerator competition since 2013 to give entrepreneurs an opportunity to get funding and production help on their software or app ideas. 

Finalists give a five-minute pitch of their idea to a group of judges who then selects an overall winner along with categorical awards. Judges will look at creativity, financial potential, and the feasibility of each concept presented. 

Last year, five finalists were selected to pitch their ideas out of 350 entries. Denton-based Cortex received the top prize for its app designed to help senior citizens retain speech function between therapy sessions.

Entrepreneurs are eligible for CodeLaunch if their software or app doesn’t have a minimum viable product. The overall winner of the competition will receive a specially designed MVP created by a team of sponsors which will be the foundation of their software. 

The 2018 CodeLaunch pitch day will be Aug. 1 at Dr Pepper Arena in Frisco. Following the presentations, there will be a startup expo allowing for networking with investors and others in the entrepreneurial community.
