Launch Days


There’s an entrepreneur in you — and ASU Launch Days is here to help you discover it. 

Throughout the months of February and September, the Edson E+I Institute hosts a series of events and opportunities for ASU students to get connected to entrepreneurship resources, student entrepreneurs, and Edson E+I team members. As part of Launch Days, we host Open Pitch Week, which is a week full of opportunities for ASU students to pitch an idea and compete to receive funding. Check out the Open Pitch Week website for more details.

Launch Days occurs twice a year, but there are so many other ways to get involved and explore your entrepreneurial interests throughout the year. Stay updated with stories, events, and opportunities related to student entrepreneurship at Arizona State University by signing up for our monthly newsletter the Just Start Spotlight.

Fall 2024 Launch Days events will be announced in August 2024.

Check out this video to hear directly from students and get inspired.
