Inventors, innovators, developers and anyone with a passion to tackle COVID-19 are invited to participate in a one of kind Startup Weekend. Our friends at Techstars are sponsoring a global Unite to Fight COVID-19 Startup Weekend and we invite the Syracuse University community to be part of it. Techstars Global Startup Weekend Covid-19 | Virtual Edition will help develop solutions that directly tackle COVID-19-related challenges at a series of free virtual events around the globe. Go to to choose an event and sign up.  U.S. events are taking place April 24-26, however international students can find programs in their home continents.  The LaunchPad is a supporting partner of this event.

For those who participated in our incredible Syracuse University Techstars Startup Weekend this past fall, you know it’s an amazing experience.  Think of the opportunities this challenge offers to meet the very best mentors, investors and sponsors from around the world, who can help refine your ideas to beat this challenge. 

No entrepreneurship experience is necessary to participate. You’ll meet team members and create ideas together. The top 20 teams from around the world will go on to participate in a Techstars Innovation Bootcamp, an intensive three-day exercise in rapidly validating solutions and building companies.
