SEMA LaunchPad 2019
Forged Authority is 1 of 15 competitors in the SEMA Launchpad 2019 competition for new businesses.
Speechless... a surreal feeling to be in such a competition with other great entrepreneurs. Every year since 2013, SEMA YEN (Young Entrepreneurs Network) and SEMA Education has hosted this event to cater to the next generation of young guns and industry leading products. It is a competition that allows the product creators to present their biography and the story of their product, and compete for a $10,000 Grand Prize. Although the money is beneficial, there are huge amounts of prizes and invaluable experience and mentoring along the journey.
The competition consists of essentially 2 stages; Round 1 consists of the 15 finalists filming a pitch video that talks about the person and the product. The video segments then hit Facebook and social media to have votes cast of who the public sees fit to move to Round 2!
Round 2 is being accepted as the Top 10 competitors remaining, which gets you a pile of SEMA benefits including a SEMA Show Kiosk booth, tickets to the banquet, and even industry consulting conversations!
The finale of the Top 5 competitors is a chance to present your product in front of 1,000+ people at the SEMA convention in November. While all 5 competitors will be featured in the SEMA News Magazine, this stage will only have 1 crown.
News and Updates will be coming throughout the summer and we will need YOUR help to make it to the next Round! Stay tuned!
