ASU Launch Days

ASU Launch Days are signature campus outreach events held each semester to create awareness of entrepreneurship programs, resources and opportunities available at ASU.  Launch Days encourage students from all majors to live and think entrepreneurially.

On Launch Day, you can expect to learn more about entrepreneurship and innovation opportunities during class visits and will have the chance to connect directly with E+I team members and student entrepreneurs to learn more and receive free giveaway items.  This fall, we will be visiting campuses weekly each Wednesday. Look for us on campus and stop by for a free "Just Start" notebook and t-shirt. Pitch your idea or cheer on your friends at Open Pitch. 

Open Pitch

What's Open Pitch? Think of it as open mic night meets Shark Tank. Pitch your idea, receive feedback and network with other ASU entrepreneurs.  Pitching at Open Pitch provides an amazing opportunity to improve your storytelling and could even provide a connection that helps you grow your idea into a venture. 

Open Pitch occurs from 4 to 5 p.m. at each campus location (*Tempe 6-8pm).  RSVP to reserve your spot to pitch or be a part of the audience.
