Launch Days

About

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. All Launch Days event dates and times are listed below, including Open Pitch Week.

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