Launchpad Side 1

Launchpad Side 2

Launchpad is a ten-week, experiential program that pulls faculty, staff and students into an environment that incubates ideas and engages prospective customers in preparation for the launch of a new business concept.

The UT Dallas Launchpad program is built off of a highly successful program implemented across the country, created by Venturewell that emphasizes the importance of engaging prospective customers early and often in the process of developing a new business concept. This ten-week program will work hands on with up to twenty students, faculty, and staff who are pursuing the launch of a new business concept and will be offered twice annually on Friday mornings from 8-10 a.m. for 10 weeks in the Fall and Spring.
