We may not be able to see each other in person over break but we’re still a connected community. Join us on Discord, the LaunchPad’s new digital networking platform that allows SU innovators to communicate over voice, video, and text. Discord is a virtual space where like-minded entrepreneurs and creatives can connect with each other to get advice, build their network, or just hang out with like-minded venture enthusiasts. It’s Slack meets Zoom with a pinch of Reddit, all in one place, curated on LaunchPad Discord. Start by joining the LaunchPad here and then hop on LaunchPad Discord here.
Discord is a freeware instant messaging, VoIP application and digital software platform that features integrated text, image, video and audio communication through a chat channel that can run on Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, Linux, and in web browsers. More than 250 million people are currently on the platform which launched in 2011 and has become a space for building community in a digital environment.
The Syracuse LaunchPad Discord platform is a great way to collaborate with others, build a team, find help, connect with a mentor or other entrepreneurs, and follow what other members of the LaunchPad are up.
Nick Barba ‘20 helped spearhead the new Discord platform and coordinates it in his role as our independent project manager for the LaunchPad. For questions about how it works or if you need help with onboarding, reach out to Nick directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
