LaunchX continues to support our students and their companies beyond the conclusion of our summer and first year clubs programs. Building a real, scalable company is a continuous process, and does not end at the conclusion of the initial program.
Our Grant Funding Program will provide equity-free investments ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 in our alumni companies who are still in continuous operation with at least two of the original founding members as of the fall after their program involvement. Grant applications are due by September 1 and are submitted through our course platform.
The grant funding application is due September 1, with the review and iterations on the applications to be completed during that month and initial funding provided on October 1. Grant funding requests must be phased throughout the school year with three key milestones associated with the funding, to be delivered before the next funding amount is provided.
