New Jersey's Technology Accelerator



Build your business.
Launch your dreams.

New Jersey’s premier Technology Accelerator, TechLaunch was created to drive the commercialization of innovative technology within the State and formed in collaboration with the NJ Economic Development Authority (EDA) (, Montclair State University (, Casabona Ventures LLC (, Jumpstart NJ Angel Network (, and successful entrepreneurs.

We provide seed-stage technology companies mentorship, business training, key services and exposure to qualified investors, most notably during Demo Day at the end of our 16-week LaunchPad business program—that’s right, we’ve extended the program 4 additional weeks!

We’re interested in cultivating the latest innovations and technologies. From consumer web and mobile applications to bio tech and green energy—and everything in between—your idea will grow at TechLaunch.

We will help ‘de-risk’ the startup technologies by helping them overcome the traditional obstacles. Our goal is for your company to more quickly achieve sustainability, or be an attractive target for follow-on funding.
