The LaunchHouse Accelerator program, also known as LHX, is set to present ten exciting technology based companies to the investment community at the LHX Showcase Day on Wednesday, November 28, from 4-9 pm.

The ten teams preparing to graduate from LHX were exposed to a range of topics including concept validation, revenue modeling and customer acquisition. The integration of customer development, first-class mentors and speakers from around the country helped to take these companies to the next level.

The startups have worked day and caffeine-fuelled nights to prepare for Showcase Day and beyond. They were selected out of applicants from around the world for the program, which started September 2012.

The companies provide a range of cutting-edge, broad-based technologies including smart phone apps, online marketplaces and adaptable platforms. The ten companies that will be showcased are:
- Tagora (signup.tagora.co)
- iOTOS (iotos.net)
- Gtail (gtail.com)
- Quick2Launch (quick2launch.com)
- FitVia (walkwithmeapp.com)
- Nest (thenestapp.com)
- Sliced Apples (slicedapples.com)
- HooftyMatch (hooftymatch.com)
- Duel (duel.fm)
- Winners Circle Gaming (winnerscirclegaming.com)

"The LaunchHouse Accelerator was a really awesome experience,” Phil Alexander, founder of Quick2LAUNCH, said. “The entrepreneur support we received from LHX gave us daily opportunities to take mentor experiences and turn them into something useful for Quick2LAUNCH."

Company building can be hard work as the teams found out, but missteps only led to greater progress toward the main goal: launching a successful company. Collaboration was a key ingredient in helping these teams to get off the ground. LHX provided $25,000 in seed capital – provided by $200,000 ONEFund grant and a $50,000 matching grant from Cleveland-based, Clarion Direct Investment – and a “structured chaos” environment where the companies were developed and given access to mentors.

LaunchHouse is the first and only accelerator in Northeast Ohio chosen to receive the ONEFund grant from the Ohio Third Frontier Program. Being a part of this program enabled LHX to attract talented speaker and mentors, such as:
• Brad Boyer, Founder & Owner, Boyer Communications Group
• Anthony Broad Crawford, Chief Product Officer, giveforward.com
• Morris Wheeler, Founder & Managing Member, Clarion Direct Investment
• David Willbrand, Partner, Thompson Hine LLP

Showcase Day marks the culmination of the 12-week LHX program, where companies will demonstrate a proof of concept to investors, potential customers, other entrepreneurs and a public eager to learn about new business growth in the region. The event will be hosted at Shaker LaunchHouse.
