The LaunchPad invites you to keep innovating over break

Winter break is the perfect time to work on your big idea, and we’re here to help. The LaunchPad is open virtually each day over break, providing full services. We are happy to schedule a personal appointment and also hook you up with a peer mentor to chat:’s super simple to make a mentor match.

E-mail us at LaunchPad@syr,edu and we can also schedule a call with one of professional staff members to help.  It’s most helpful if you shoot us an e-mail with a one sentence description of what you’re working on so we can connect you with the best person to help.

Here are some other resources that you’ll find helpful over break:
