This lemonade stand was one of the most creative booths at club
fairs held during freshman orientation sessions over past month.
The display — a nod toward that first classic childhood
business — promotes Blackstone LaunchPad at UB, a program
that helps students, staff, faculty and alumni develop
entrepreneurial skills and become entrepreneurs. Students running
the stand during an orientation session on Aug. 1 share information
on the LaunchPad,
whose services range from workshops to one-on-one venture coaching.
