Launchpad By Procopio

Procopio’s commitment to the startup community runs deep. For some entrepreneurs we’re there from the beginning with our LaunchPad incubator. Since 2012, a select group of carefully chosen high-technology entrepreneurs have begun the formation, protection of core technology, early funding and growth of their companies in Procopio’s Del Mar Heights office, alongside attorneys who understand their industries and the path to success for emerging growth companies.

Meet our outstanding 2019 cohort >>

Our LaunchPad program hosts startups in a wide array of industries, including:

  • Life sciences, biotechnology and medical technology
  • Clean tech and renewable energy
  • Software and Internet-based technology
  • High-technology hardware

LaunchPad participants benefit from a complimentary legal start-up package, valuable office space and back-office business support including conference rooms and other amenities, all while located in the heart of San Diego’s high-technology community. Participating entrepreneurs also benefit from education on key topics—including valuation, funding, intellectual property strategy, employment issues, and pursuing a strong exit—along with access to successful entrepreneurs and investors and experts in finance, marketing and other areas of need. Our attorneys provide ongoing legal support and assist with corporate structuring, patent protection, investor pitches, branding, and growth strategy.

The LaunchPad incubator program runs for nine months, with the possibility of an extension lasting up to twelve months. Our focus is on ensuring that participants progress through the formative stages of business development and leave the incubator positioned for further growth and success.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING

 

“Our time in Procopio’s LaunchPad incubator was just what we needed to get our company up and running. The attorneys allowed us the freedom to do our thing without interference But they were also always open to a legal consultation on short notice in an unscheduled sync in one of their offices. Knowing top-flight corporate attorneys were right down the hall allowed us to focus our time and effort on building our business. We can definitely trace our current success back to our time in Procopio’s LaunchPad.”
