Blackstone LaunchPad Ambassadors for Student Engagement and Recruitment (BLASERs) are student ambassadors who create new paths for entrepreneurship by promoting Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars throughout UB campuses and beyond. The BLASER program offers a unique opportunity for students to get involved in the campus community while gaining valuable career-building skills. 

In exchange for assisting with outreach and increasing awareness about opportunities provided by Blackstone Launchpad, BLASERs receive training, participate in professional development workshops and leadership assessments, and attend exclusive networking opportunities. BLASERs may also qualify to earn internship credit for this experience.
