This cohort came from 7 operating countries, across a diverse range of innovations including navigation, makeup, health, mobility, entertainment, gaming, and fitness.

Congratulations to all of the founders who worked so hard and made an incredible amount of progress during the 8 weeks of our 2024 Launcher program. Their passion and experience is truly transforming the future of Disability Tech!
