Startup Launch provides students the funding, coaching and legal services to launch their startups and take their products to market. It's a 12-week intensive student-focused program for student teams to work on their startup ideas. Just like LEARN and MAKE, Startup Launch is led by a specialized team that will coach the student teams. Teams admitted into the program will be eligible for investment funding from a startup investment fund, established and managed outside of Georgia Tech, for this specific purpose.
A major portion of the seed investment fund is anticipated to be spent by the teams on product design, customer discovery, minimum viable product, infrastructure, prototyping, customer validation, market research, travel, customer meetings, online presence and more. Startup Launch is available for all Georgia Tech students, regardless of their year/stage of study.
