LaunchPad

Helping innovation culture in the Shenandoah Valley take off!
  • Got a great idea and don’t know where to start?
  • Need prototyping help but don’t have the skills?
  • Got an idea but you’re not yet ready to go to the Small Business Development Center?
  • Want to innovate and develop solutions but don’t know how?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions LaunchPad is for you.

LaunchPad is an 8-week course focused on developing your ideas into something that matters. Tailored to participant needs, we’ll cover design thinking, product optimization (making something that matters), prototyping and early testing. Participants work together to solve market problems, test solutions, and network with other valley innovators to get their ideas off the ground.

And yes, all work, projects and prototypes belongs to the innovator.

But that’s not all!

If you’re looking to work with other innovators in the area, sign up for the self-directed option below and you’ll have access to our open lab times, which change each semester in order to accommodate class schedules.
