Software and Design Coaches help student innovators consider future customer demand and needs from a design and technical perspective.

About Software and Design Coaches

If your innovation has technical needs, meeting with a software and design coach at Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars can inspire creative thinking and development from a technical perspective. Meeting with a coach can help student innovators think through options, consider alternatives and connect with resources for website development, web hosting, logo design, coding, app development, prototyping, search engine optimization and more. Software and design coaches can help student entrepreneurs leverage the latest technology to move their ventures forward and connect with potential markets and customers. 

Because software and design coaches sign confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements, student innovators can talk with them knowing that their invention will be protected and remain confidential.  

Participation and Eligibility

One-on-one mentoring sessions with software and design coaches are free of charge to any UB student with a venture that has a technical need. Contact Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars to schedule an appointment.

Blackstone LaunchPad powered by Techstars also seeks tech-savvy problem solvers who are interested in volunteering as a venture coach and helping innovators at UB find creative solutions to technical challenges.
