Innovation is intrinsic to Penn—part of the school’s legacy and roots since its founding by Benjamin Franklin in 1740. And much like Franklin’s belief that “well-done is better than well-said,” the culture at Penn is one of taking action and experimenting in pursuit of impact.
As a LaunchX student, you’ll join the entrepreneurs at the Pennovation Center—Penn’s business incubator and laboratory that aligns and integrates researchers, innovators, and entrepreneurs for the commercialization of research discoveries. Creating an atmosphere for collaboration, creativity, and productivity across disciplines, the Pennovation Center brings people together to foster interaction and the exchange of ideas.
Living on-campus at the university, your LaunchX courses will be taught by expert instructors as you receive specialized mentorship from the movers and shakers of Philadelphia’s rapidly growing startup scene.
