LBS Launchpad is more than a pre-accelerator.

It's an ongoing conversation about innovation, entrepreneurship, and business growth. Visit the LBS Launchpad Live page for curated content and inspiration. It's fresh, practical, and free.

Launchpad helped us form our team and gain clarity on our mission. We started with a broad goal - too broad! - and the Launchpad workshops and pitch sessions helped us refine our idea and gain valuable feedback on where to take it. The program also added structure to an otherwise freeform goal.
