The Launch X course explores different dilemmas entrepreneurs may encounter in launching their new ventures.
Each week will focus on a particular dilemma: Is the right team in place to build the company? How do you source the product sustainably? Does the company have the funding needed to launch its expansion? How to deal with a partner who has gone rogue?
Students will utilize their own new ventures to debate potential solutions. The course will culminate in a Shark-Tank-style pitch for funding.
Launch X will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays in Beatty 120 (Impact X room) from 3:25 to 4:40. The course will be taught by Troy Knauss, an experienced entrepreneur, and investor in over 60 startups.
Interested students should apply for the Fall 2023 cohort here!
