As far as university classes go, NUvention pretty much tops them all. Setting undergraduate and graduate students alike loose to form their own teams, NUvention allows students to build their own startups by following the extremely experiential Lean LaunchPad methodology, and pitch to some of the country’s great entrepreneurial minds. They are pioneers in the space by embedding their entrepreneurship program university-wide.
"Reviewing LaunchPad Central is 100x better for me as a faculty member than reading business plans..."
- Mike Marasco, Director of Farley Center of Entrepreneurship and Innovation
Victory Spark is a mentor-driven seed accelerator, part of the Global Accelerator Network, exclusively for America’s U.S. Military Veterans. Veteran-initiated startups are exposed to a national group of mentors and investors who believe that veterans can be leaders on a new front line – entrepreneurship. They have led the way through their early adoption of the Lean LaunchPad methodology.
"As a mentor, it allows me to step into the incubator/accelerator without ever having to be there."
- Ross Bjella, Mentor at VETransfer
