Our Process

Since 2009, LAUNCH has successfully designed, developed and delivered 12 challenges resulting in the acceleration of more than 100 innovators. Here's how we do it. 

STEP 1: SYSTEMS UNDERSTANDING

We examine the market with our cross-sector partners, rather than with a specific innovation, to generate a unique shared understanding of the challenges and opportunities within a given system.

STEP 2: SOURCING INNOVATIONS

Then we engage the network to find innovators around the globe who have prototyped or developed in-market solutions to these challenges.

STEP 3: ACCELERATION

Next, we provide innovators with the insights and resources necessary to overcome barriers in bringing their products to the market and advancing them.

STEP 4: MARKET INTEGRATION

Finally, we work with selected innovators and the network to secure the investment and procurements necessary for innovators to reach scale. 

From 2017 - 2022, LAUNCH is focused on two systems:

The Future of Food

The Circular Economy
