Last Summer, UB’s Blackstone LaunchPad campus-based entrepreneurship network hosted a virtual Summer Accelerator program which gave students the opportunity to build their very own venture or startup idea. This event garnered a lot of engagement, and many teams went on to achieve new heights after participating. This year we’ll continue giving students invaluable access to LaunchPad national resources, mentorship, industry leaders, workshops and more.
During this eight-week program, teams will be immersed in weekly programming and will also have the opportunity to compete for a total of $5,000 in prizes at the end of the program. Any undergraduate, graduate or recent graduate is invited to apply as either a formed venture or as a free-agent, where they can work with a team.
Please share this information with your students. You will find below specifics and details about the program as well as a flyer and Instagram graphic:
