Blackstone LaunchPad Ideas Competition
October 7, 2022 | 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Do you have a brainstorm for a business hidden somewhere in your notebook? Have you and a friend plotted out a great idea but find yourself stuck on what to do next? The Blackstone LaunchPad Ideas Competition could give you the funding and support you need to see if you can turn that idea into something bigger. Go to this link to apply.
The competition gives students with just an idea the chance to win up to $10,000 to start the next big thing. This low barrier to entry opportunity will also help you explore entrepreneurship and build entrepreneurial skills with the help of the Syracuse LaunchPad. With a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, the Ideas Competition especially encourages students from underrepresented and under-resourced communities, from all majors offered on campus, and students who represent multiple genders and ethnicities.
Applicants must be current students (undergraduate or graduate-level) in the earliest stage of their entrepreneurial journey (anywhere from an idea on paper to a product prototype/service pilot). Applicants must be the founder or co-founder (i.e., the person with the original idea), and may apply individually or in teams of two. All applicants will eventually create a profile on StartupTree.
