Starter Meetups are invigorating demonstrations led by a current student or recent alum who has started their own business. These local entrepreneurs will give a live demonstration of their product, discuss how they came up with their product or service idea, and share any industry tips and tricks they’ve learned along the way. In the past, we’ve had starters make beer, bake cookies, produce music, and much more. This event is the catalyst for getting immersed into the UCF startup community and connecting with others involved in the entrepreneurial ecosystem.
Stop into the LaunchPad every Tuesday for a story about the entrepreneurial experience as lived through a UCF student entrepreneur. Sit back, relax, and learn from someone who’s been through the startup journey and wants to help you do the same.
Starter Sandbox is our entrepreneurial workshop series. Each week, students can learn a new skill like blogging, marketing, product development, intellectual property, and much more. Check our events calendar to find the workshop theme for you!
