Who is the top founder on campus? A team of celebrity LaunchPad alumni judges, led by Josh Aviv ’15 G’17, Shark Tank million-dollar prize winner and founder of SparkCharge, will award the Founders Cup trophy, along with a $5,000 grand prize. As the LaunchPad celebrates its 5th year, we wanted to create a fun reunion event to unite the top founders who have through our program as they crown the new champion. You’re invited to be part of the fun, Friday, October 29 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in Bird Library. We invite all LaunchPad member student startups to compete in this spirited event. It’s quick and easy to apply through this simple online portal. We’ll be looking for your applications by Friday, October 22 at 11:59 p.m.

Syracuse alumni can help support this fun event through a Fundwurx challenge. Syracuse student startups have already committed seed funding to the prize package through a new crowdfunding platform founded by Ben Ford ’23 (Whitman marketing management and iSchool data analytics). Now we’re challenging LaunchPad alumni to jump in and contribute.
