Giving Back with Blackstone

Here is how giving back makes an impact.

There are many ways to give back to your alma mater or community. Donating your time and expertise to the Blackstone LaunchPad at UB is a great way to engage and empower current students. We are always seeking members of the community to serve as mentors or participate in speaking engagements.

Be a mentor.

Your expertise can make a difference with the next generation of entrepreneurs. Blackstone LaunchPad will pair you with individuals who will benefit the most from your particular skills, and you take it from there. You and your mentee can decide how often to meet and what goals you’d like to achieve.

Share your story.

Whether speaking individually to a small group or serving as panelists during one of our workshops, entrepreneurs and others in the community can pass on invaluable experience. Some of our regular speaker series include How I Built This and Female Founder Friday. Visit our events calendar to see a full listing of the programs we offer. If there’s an area that’s of particular interest, let us know!

Donate.

Your support can inspire and impact the next generation of entrepreneurs. Donate now.*
