Procopio Recruits 2020 Class For Its Del Mar Heights Incubator

January 6, 2020 (San Diego) – Calling all San Diego startups! Procopio is looking to fill its 2020 LaunchPad incubator class. No more than five inspiring ventures will be admitted to the nine-month program run out of our Del Mar Heights office in the heart of San Diego’s high-technology community.

Since 2012, a select group of carefully chosen entrepreneurs have begun the formation, protection of core technology, early funding and growth of their companies within our LaunchPad program. Incubator participants work side by side with attorneys who understand their industries and the path to success for emerging growth companies. Participants come from a range of industries, including software and Internet-based technologies, high-tech hardware, life sciences and med tech, clean tech, renewable energy, and more.

“Launching any startup is hard work. Besides the compelling idea, you need capital, dedication, laser sharp focus and the right team. Procopio’s LaunchPad provides the all-important incubation ingredient to a startup whereby great legal minds are available to help and advise in all key aspects, such as fundraising structure, patent strategy and software compliance,” said Walid Romaya, CEO of RealStir (Real Estate on Demand), a 2019 LaunchPad participant. “Besides the legal advice, RealStir felt at home at the beautiful space with great support and encouragement. I highly recommend Procopio’s LaunchPad to any startup who needs that extra lift to take it to the next level.”*

Entrepreneurs participating in the incubator receive credit toward corporate and intellectual property legal services of their choosing and ongoing legal support as they position their companies for outside funding. They do so while benefiting from complimentary office space and back-office business support including conference rooms and other amenities.

LaunchPad participants entrepreneurs also benefit from education on key topics—including valuation, funding, intellectual property strategy, employment issues, and positioning for a strong exit—along with access to successful entrepreneurs and investors and experts in finance, marketing and other critical areas for emerging-growth companies.

Applications for the 2020 LaunchPad class are being accepted until February 2020, with move-in dates to be scheduled for March 2020. Potential LaunchPad participants can learn more about the program and apply at procopio.com/launchpad.
