Launch Your Business

Apply to Launchpad ME–301

If you're a Stanford grad student interested in launching your business during Launchpad Spring quarter, first a few considerations:

  • Application will be open February 1–26, closing at 3pm PST the 26th. APPLICATION IS NOW CLOSED.
  • Those accepted or rejected will be notified within a week after the application closes February 26. The teaching team will accept around 10 teams.  
  • In addition to filling out the application, students are required to attend at least two office hours (see information to right) before the application closes and create a 1 minute video showing the need you hope to address and the product/service you have prototyped to address it.
  • Class meets Spring quarter, Mondays and Wednesdays 10:30–12:20pm, room 200.
  • 4 units, letter grade or credit/no credit.

If you do not have a passionate and overwhelming urge to start a business or launch a product or service, this class will not be a fit.

Please note this class is only available to Stanford grad students.
