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.
