Startups seeking a kick in the pants should consider signing up with LaunchNow. LaunchNow is designed to get startup companies in gear by letting them engage in friendly competition with other startups around the world.

LaunchNow lets startups register for free and then proceeds to give them goals. Goals include, but are not limited to: turning a profit, going public, attracting investors and getting press coverage. There aren't any monetary rewards for startups that achieve these goals, but badges are rewarded. These badges are proudly displayed on the company's LaunchNow profile and can be used for bragging rights or as a virtual list of achievements for interested investors. Over 450 startups are currently registered with LaunchNow, which is free to use at the moment.
