Inclusive Launch

A female entrepreneur speaks to students inside the Blackstone LaunchPad office.

Encouraging equality is one of Blackstone LaunchPad’s core values. Supported in part by the Charles D. and Mary A. Bauer Foundation, Blackstone LaunchPad hosts a series of workshops and discussions to empower women and men from all backgrounds to be our next innovators, entrepreneurs, makers and creators.

We partner with various organizations in the Western New York Community to develop engaging and inspiring seminars. Students may attend as many or as few seminars as they would like.

Regular events include networking opportunities, where students have the opportunity to connect with other like-minded students and local entrepreneurs. Check our Facebook page for details about Inclusive Launch events.
