Launch Your Future.
At CoLab Inc. we're dedicated to encouraging the spirit of entrepreneurship. Our four programs surround entrepreneurs with access to resources, mentors, business fundamentals, capital sources and community partners they need to succeed.
PLAN // PITCH // WIN
As a collegiate program, LaunchU encourages collaboration between students, professors and administration at the host university. Students develop a plan and business model for a spring term pitch competition that is modeled after ABC's hit show Shark Tank.
At the LaunchU Event, 5-10 teams of students present their ideas and business plans to a panel of judges, who will provide feedback. Winning teams receive startup prize money, up to 5 hours of mentoring and an invitation to pitch against other schools for additional funding at the Moxie Event.
