An effort to help web and mobile entrepreneurs bring their ideas to market, kicks off tomorrow with the first of two events held in London.

The Launch48 Conference aims educate new entrepreneurs from different backgrounds on what to expect in the first two years of a new business.

All participants get the opportunity to pitch their ideas, after which a small number are chosen by the attendees and developed, with mentors from leading industry players such as PayPal, Vodafone and Yahoo helping the event participants.

Subjects covered include how to build a team, how to attract investment and strategies to build market share. The aim is not only to turn some bright ideas into business reality, but to give all participants and insight into the skills and discipline needed for a successful business launch.

On Sunday evening the projects will be presented to the Launch48 Weekend attendees.

A follow-up event is scheduled for 6 weeks after this weekend’s event to help keep teams working on their ideas, and offer on-going support from the mentors.

Launch48 says it has experienced great success over the past year with at least two businesses created at previous events going on to generate revenue.

Tickets are available from £34.95 and more information is available at http://london.launch48.com.
