The Launch Pad

The Launch Pad opened in August 2008 as part of the Toppel Career Center and offers career guidance, resources, and advice to entrepreneurs, innovators, and inventors at the University of Miami. One basic goal of The Launch Pad is to show University of Miami students and alumni that starting a new venture is a legitimate career path. A second key goal is to encourage every UM student who wants to start a new venture - either for-profit or not for profit - to do so in South Florida and thereby contribute to the economic and social growth of our region.

Through regular individual and group consultative sessions, workshops, and networking events - and through the good work of a network of local Venture Coaches - The Launch Pad is strengthening an entrepreneurial culture at the University of Miami and helping students and alumni from every school, college, and campus transform innovative ideas into successful and sustainable South Florida enterprises. The Launch Pad programs connect ideas, people, and resources; provide advice and guidance; builds relationships with experts in the local business community; and thus increases the likelihood of bringing new enterprises - whether for-profit or not-for-profit, to South Florida.

The Launch Pad Team is comprised of entrepreneurs, inventors, business professionals, and students who are committed to helping you at every stage of your entrepreneurial journey. If you would like to join The Launch Pad team, please contact us!
