The Blackstone LaunchPad is the reason why I am exactly where my company stands today. I have leveraged every resource the LaunchPad has offered and introductions to an amazing group of mentors, advisers, and now team members. The atmosphere inside of our launch pad is electrifying. Everyone pulls together and works on each others venture to make sure we are all successful. Our LaunchPad team invites some of the biggest, coolest, and incredibly motivating speakers in Orlando to come guide us. From the bottom of my heart thank you for allowing me and my team to be part of the experience. Truly made my college career impossible to replicate.
The Blackstone LaunchPad at Montana State has been integral in taking our product from a prototype to a functional business.

Blackstone LaunchPad has been really helpful in helping us think about and execute our capital raising strategy, especially as we engage public sector and philanthropic investors in addition to traditional private sector ones.
Guidance from the Blackstone LaunchPad team at CWRU was key in winning multiple student business competitions. The funds raised through these business competitions helped us lay the foundations of the company, both in terms of technology development and entity establishment. Blackstone LaunchPad has also helped us network with potential customers, advisers and investors.
