Effective December 2020
Attention all affiliates of the University of Miami a major change has occurred to our facility known as SkyLab. As of December 1, 2020, it will no longer be operated by The Launch Pad due to the restrictions of COVID-19. We have scaled back our operation to solely operate out of our main space.
Skylab was the hub for startups looking for a dedicated space focused on enhancing their growth. We hosted many events ranging from our grand opening that featured almost 300 attendees, multiple monthly startup roundtables, our MVP showcase which put a stoplight on emerging ventures, pitch competitions, a summer camp that introduced aspiring CANES to entrepreneurship, plus various founder speaker events and panels. With all the opportunities SkyLab has offered our community we can’t wait to see what the future holds.
The Launch Pad’s main office will still be housed in the University Center until further notice. Our office will continue to practice social distancing through the spring semester. There are plans to combine the features of SkyLab’s co-working function with our main space in the future.
A huge thank you to everyone who occupied the space, attended the events, and supported the community!
