What Is LaunchU?

LaunchU is a year-long process that encourages students to collaborate with peers and professors at their university to develop a business plan and compete in a pitch competition for the opportunity to win startup funding and mentorships.

"The biggest hurdle that student entrepreneurs encounter is access to seed capital but because of Colab INC, we have been able to develop our entrepreneurial ecosystem."
