Innovation is coming thick and fast within the app ecosystem at the moment, perhaps at a faster rate than ever before.
Wonderful news for everyone of course, but for the enterprising developer / tech startup founder it also means that making yourself heard and getting your innovation noticed by the right people, can sometimes seem like a Herculean challenge.

Apps World Startup Launchpad
This week we have been taking a look at Apps World, the leading global multi-platform event within the app industry. This year’s Europe event will be taking place at ExCeL in London on the 18th and 19th of November and will include a rather exciting Startup pitch competition called the Startup Launchpad.
Specifically created for startups working within the app space, the Startup Launchpad will give 8 startups the chance to pitch their product in front of a panel of experts and leading lights from the technology and digital spheres. Not only will the participating startups gain immense experience of pitching their work to the figureheads of their industry, but they will also be given priceless advice and the opportunity to secure investment and move their business to the next level.
Those who are not selected to be one of the lucky eight will nonetheless be in with a chance to win a startup pod on the Apps World expo floor, which will give them an amazing stage from which to showcase their product to over 10,000 attendees.
