Take your business to the next level | Prepare for investors | Achieve rapid growth and impact

Program Term: Fall & Winter | Program Timeline: Thursdays from 3-5pm

Are you ready to take your business to the next level? Launch is a program for students looking to grow and scale their existing business/company in an incubation-style environment.

What is Launch?

The Launch program is open to all Carleton students who are seeking to grow their own for-profit or non-profit ventures. This 12 session incubator focuses on preparing existing ventures for rapid growth and impact. Launch topics include graphic design, marketing, branding, personalized market research, and much more.

Why join Launch?

The Launch program will provide students with the tools and lessons needed to take their business to new heights, with support from dedicated coaches, mentors and industry specific experts to help guide young entrepreneurs. Launch offers funding for ventures that meet specified milestones over the course of the program and opportunities to pitch ideas and solutions to early-stage investors!

In addition to the valuable learning experience, the connections you will make, and the support you will receive, students enrolled in an Innovation Hub program will also receive a certificate upon completion. Each program challenges students in new ways and pushes them to develop specific skillsets. There’s no limit for how many programs you can complete, and we encourage passionate individuals who are willing to work hard to join any program when they are ready.  Visit the Hub and speak to our team to determine which program is right for you.

When does Launch take place?

Launch is delivered twice a year in the fall and winter terms. The next Launch program cohort begins in September and will span about 12 weeks.
