Positioning Statement

For college students, the Blackstone LaunchPad network propels your success through entrepreneurship. We can connect you to a global network of mentors, events, funding, talent, job opportunities, and more, so you can gain key entrepreneurship skills to build a successful company or build your resume for success in landing a job after college and advancing your career.    

For higher-ed institutions, LaunchPad invests in your entrepreneurship programs, acting as the central hub for entrepreneurial activities. Students can turn to LaunchPad to receive tailored suggestions to connect both to existing opportunities on campus and to a global network of peers and professionals to help them succeed in building companies and careers.


Blackstone LaunchPad:

The Blackstone LaunchPad network makes entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial skills accessible and relevant for all college students to help them build thriving companies and careers. We work with higher-ed institutions to deliver proven startup resources, facilitate access to a global network of mentors and advisors, and offer unique virtual and physical convening opportunities so thousands of diverse college students can go further, faster. Students learn by doing, gaining knowledge and critical skills to help them succeed as a founder or contributor to the innovation economy. LaunchPad’s ever-expanding network encompasses campuses with predominantly underrepresented populations.

Blackstone Charitable Foundation:

The Blackstone Charitable Foundation has led Blackstone’s philanthropic initiatives since 2007. We are driven by the firm’s commitment to diversity and inclusion and providing access to opportunity in the communities in which we live and work. Blackstone LaunchPad helps college students learn entrepreneurial skills for success to build thriving companies and careers, with an increasing commitment to schools that have a majority diverse student population or engage with under-represented communities. BX Connects engages Blackstone’s global employee base to partner with non-profits, supporting their missions through volunteer opportunities, fundraising, board service, and other charitable activities.
