About The Program

Our clubs program expands the reach of high school entrepreneurship to students and schools everywhere. We hand our curriculum off to motivated and forward-thinking teens so you can build a startup throughout the school year, supported by our detailed programming, resources, and mentorship.

This is not a business plan competition. Your task is to create a real startup—to solve a real need in a differentiated way. The focus is on taking action, learning from results, and making changes to improve your chances of success.

What students say about our entrepreneurship clubs

teen entrepreneur Sofia Di Lodovico<

Sofia Di Lodovico

I joined LaunchX on a whim, and it turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. In the beginning, I would never have described myself as an entrepeneur, but within 9 months I proudly showcased my business cards with my title - cofounder. LaunchX taught me to harness my inner entrepreneur that I didn’t even know was there.

What really defines LaunchX is not the prize or the glory, but the community and the outcome. We partake in a journey to showcase our ambition, more or less unclear of the reality of which real businesses compete in. Yet, in pursuit of our goals, we grow together and learn about what it really takes to be an entrepreneur, about what it takes to be a risk-taker.

I never would have imagined creating a startup as a high school student. But LaunchX makes this possible with its incredible network of students, educators, and business professionals and the targeted, individualized mentorship they provide. With its valuable resources and fun yet take-charge culture, LaunchX has helped me take concrete actions to turn a good idea on paper into a viable business. Through LaunchX, I’ve learned how to identify real problems and develop innovative solutions, not by homework or lectures, but by doing, building, and developing connections.

LaunchX has such a great learning system that it always engages the club members to take action, come up with new ideas, and always be ready to adopt changes that come with the applications of knowledge. This is what makes this program unique.

Divya Pinnaka, cofounder at Milestone

The program is interesting because it... helps teens create real businesses, not theoretical or mock companies—real functioning companies. I took on the responsibility of school champion for Memphis because I have way too many goals to do them all. By educating other young people, maybe they can do some of the things I wish I could do and bring their different perspectives to the table.
