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.

If you would like to learn more, please visit our Fall 2015 Kickoff Mixer on September 1st and fill out the application by the 09/11/15 deadline.
