Resources for our entrepreneurs to use for research, business, and personal assistance on their venture goals.

The Blackstone LaunchPad at Syracuse has curated a collection of resources to help you bring an idea to life, or just learn more about innovation.  Be sure to check the the drop down pages in this tab for a roadmap to help you get started, as well as templates for executive summaries, pitch decks, business plans.  You'll also find a directory of free startup tools, useful blogs, and research databases.  Be sure to explore all that this collection offers.
