For any recent grads:
In this 8-week virtual program, student founders and cofounders will receive $5,000 in non-dilutive grant funding to support their time working on advancing their 'Social Impact' startups. LaunchPad Fellowships are largely self-driven, but also offer a speaker series and other opportunities to build a peer and advisor network. Resource and programmatic support of this program (including participant selection) is provided by Techstars and Future Founders. Requirements include weekly company updates, participation in entrepreneurial workshops, a mid-program narrative, along with a final report. The Fall 2020 LaunchPad Fellowship will accept up to 50 founders or cofounders of 'Social Impact' startups (for-profit, not-for-profit, Public Benefit Corporation, or B Corporation startups are all eligible) and is open to current students and 2020 graduates of schools in the Blackstone LaunchPad & Techstars network.
