This year’s LaunchPad judges were Sarah Sibley of Got2Jot, Penny Green of kikki-K, Jamie Mitchell of Ohh Deer and Michael Owen of Lime Stationery & Art. They were looking for well thought out product ideas, that were realistically priced which would benefit from the exposure a trade show can offer – either immediate orders, or the offer of support and development.
