The CREATE-X LAUNCH element consists of a program and workshops for students and alumni who want to launch their projects from idea stage (or beyond) into fully functioning and viable startups. In LAUNCH, students have the opportunity to take the skills they learned from the LEARN and MAKE elements to the next level.

Startup Launch

Startup Launch is a 12-week summer program where students and alumni “intern” to launch their own startup.



CREATE-X regularly hosts workshops intended for students interested in applying to Startup Launch.

"LAUNCH provides students an incredible opportunity to create real startups. CREATE-X has helped launch more than 300 companies since the initiative began in 2014. This is easily the largest number of student startups launched by any college campus in the country over this period.”
