Today in Durham, NC, seven new startups presented at the LaunchBox Digital 2010 Demo Day which is the culmination of 12 weeks of mentoring. This is LaunchBox Digital's third year incubating new businesses and their first year in Durham, North Carolina. LaunchBox Digital was based in Washington, D.C. for the previous two years, where 17 companies were accelerated. Of those initial 17 companies, 9 received funding, 3 exited through acquisition and 10 are still alive today. It's also worth noting that LaunchBox Digital was founded initially by current FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, SBA Assoc. Admin. Sean Greene and former AOL CTO John McKinley who is the only remaining member of the team.
