Become a member of the Blackstone LaunchPad

Join us by completing the form below, and be part of a network of innovation and opportunity!


Membership is free, and allows you to receive notification and participation in national, state and regional business plan competitions. Membership provides you with access to networking opportunities with entrepreneurs, researchers, investors, funders and technical service providers. You will have access to an open co-working space and tools to help get your ideas off the ground and scale.  Most importantly, you'll get personalized mentoring and coaching to help guide you on a journey of imagination, exploration and innovation.

Whether you want to work on your own idea, or work for an innovation company where you can eventually put your  "startup thinking" skills to work, we will help you to trailblaze your own path, and find success in your life and career. Skills you learn in the LaunchPad will help you become a leader, and discover how you can make an impact in the world.  You'll make friends in our creative, collaborative community, and form warm and lasting bonds that you will take with you through life. The most interesting people on campus call the LaunchPad home. Come join us, and become a member.

Be sure to join our virtual community here after you fill out the above form. The Blackstone LaunchPad at Syracuse University uses Discord to help entrepreneurs, mentors, and alumni keep in touch with each other at the click of a button. Join our community today!
