The Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership and its Blackstone LaunchPad offer students connections to several opportunities to earn resources to pursue early-stage startup venture milestones. For example, we proudly offer students opportunities to win a share of $25,000 in cash awards in our Joust New Venture Competition presented by Echelon. We also promote opportunities presented by our strategic partners such as Fellowships offered to participants in Techstars and VentureWell accelerator programs. Check back often to see new opportunities to join competitions, apply for fellowships and awards, and meet early-stage investors.
