Our goal at The Launch Pad has been to make entrepreneurship a viable option for current students, alumni, and employees of the University of Miami. By providing resources, guidance, and networking opportunities, the Launch Pad aims to reduce the friction and pain points associated with venture creation.
The Launch Pad at the University of Miami is a co-curricular university-wide entrepreneurship resource and program. It aims to make the practice of entrepreneurship available to all students and alumni in the University and to enable and encourage them to start their ventures in the University’s region.
The Launch Pad defines entrepreneurship as the transformation of an innovation into an enterprise that generates value. Its program is an exercise in experiential capitalism, grounded in the conviction that entrepreneurship is best—and perhaps only—learned by doing it for real.
