Startup Resources


It is critically important for students in invest in their own disciplinary expertise and entrepreneurial thinking skills by attending classes, workshops, and advising sessions. However, there comes a point in the venture development process when students need startup resources beyond those offered by classes or coaches. Consequently, the CEL connect students to FREE resources such as:

  • Industry experts and local leaders
  • Funding opportunities
  • Online resources and tools
  • Startup and innovation workspaces
  • Graphic design and web development services
  • Free market and financial research support

Most of these resources are available to all students, but access to mentors and design services are available on a referral basis and must be "earned" by being engaged clients of our Blackstone LaunchPad. Thus, we encourage you to discuss your needs with our LaunchPad staff and take advantage of the free resources you need to accelerate your learning and venture development process.
