LaunchU is an intensive start-up boot camp and incubator designed to successfully launch Ober­lin entrepreneurs. Culminating in a public pitch competition before a panel of potential investors on Saturday, January 31, 2015, LaunchU is a platform through which both aspir­ing and active Oberlin entrepreneurs refine their ventures, develop skills and networks, compete for $15,000 in funding and launch their businesses. Oberlin has a long history of innovation and entrepreneurship, and LaunchU continues this tradition by launching start-ups across a full spectrum of business, social enterprise, and philanthropic opportunities. The applicant pool is: fully vetted; open only to Oberlin students, faculty and alumni; includes a competitive application process, rigorous model and pitch coaching/ development; and expert guidance/participation from successful alumni, faculty, and investors.

We are actively seeking applications from students and alumni for LaunchU 2015. LaunchU also is expanding our network of select investors and mentors (both Oberlin alumni and other active investors/entrepreneurs) seeking unique access to and active engagement with a diverse portfolio of early-stage ventures and entrepreneurial teams. Investor involvement includes: attending the Pitch Competition in Oberlin or via the Internet; mentoring and investing in LaunchU start-ups beyond the competition; connecting through LaunchU in other specific/customized ways by contacting Kate Chase, Acting Director -- kate.chase@oberlin.edu or 440.775.8567
