Different Aspects of Amazon Launchpad

Watch and Shop

Watch and Shop is one of the most popular sections on Amazon Launchpad because it’s a place for sellers and entrepreneurs to showcase their product with a short description and a video.

As Seen on Shark Tank

This section is a collaboration with the show Shark Tank. if you are unfamiliar with what that is, it is a show where entrepreneurs display their product to 4 investors and the investors get to choose who they want to fund. Now this section may not be relevant to you, but it may help to know about it to see what kind of competition your product could be up against.

Kickstarter

The Kickstarter section is a section that is dedicated to items that were started on the platform Kickstarter. So if you have products on Kickstarter, this is a category you could shoot for.

Amazon Launchpad Hall of Fame
