LaunchPad UTD is a business accelerator that offers an experience-based educational community where entrepreneurs can start acting on their business ideas and access resources to help them along the way. LaunchPad UTD provides a unique method to efficiently test their business idea, customers, market, and profitability. LaunchPad UTD does not take equity and is free to the entrepreneur.
Our world has become a global market where almost everything is a mouse-click and nano-second away. UTD must and will be a global player. We are well positioned to act globally because the Metroplex is one of the world’s most important cities and because of our connections to the global technology research and business enterprises.
