Launchpad Venture Group is an angel investment group — an assembly of active investors who cooperate in making investments in early-stage businesses. We have done a number of projects for Launchpad:
- When Launchpad merged with Race Point Capital, another local angel group, we re-built Launchpad’s website, using the original structure and coding from the Race Point website in order to produce Launchpad’s newly re-branded site quickly and inexpensively.
- As Launchpad grew, the group needed a members-only area of the site. We built a new backend to the original site based on the Drupal framework, which provides secure login, member account management and extensive data management capabilities. We also created a custom import routine that pulls information from Launchpad’s internal database into the Drupal site. As a result, Launchpad members can now track Launchpad’s multi-stage screening and investment processes for each company Launchpad considers, as well as browse a directory listing of the skills and capabilities of their fellow members.
- To improve the entrepreneur application process, Tech-Tamer added additional capabilities to the Drupal backend which now permits entrepreneurs to register on the site, to draft, edit and submit Launchpad’s detailed application questionnaire, and to upload related documents.
