The New Face of Idea Launch Pad

12 Feb

A lot of times, students have ideas that usually evoke the response, “That would be so COOL if it was actually real!”. Unfortunately, they rarely feel that they have the chance to turn these ideas into a reality.

Idea Launch Pad is meant to help these students take their AWESOME ideas and make them into something more! This will happen with the support of other students, professors, and a panel of advisors consisting of area entrepreneurs and investors.

In many of Elon’s entrepreneurship classes, students are encouraged to share their ideas with their peers and in turn, receive valuable feedback from their classmates. This feedback helps them structure and modify their thoughts to find the most viable concept. As someone who has been through this process many times, I can honestly say that it is one of the most helpful experiences I’ve had at Elon. This is why SEED wants to give every student, no matter what major, the opportunity to act like an IDEO employee and bounce ideas off one another.

We’ve reshaped Idea Launch Pad to resemble the TV show, The Voice. This allows teams to work with trained student advisors in order to compete for the Grand Prize at the end of the week-long round.
