Launch Denver is a 10-week Business Startup workshop that is free for faculty, staff, students, alumni, and community members. The program is held twice yearly and is intended to be an outreach effort to engage participants throughout the university and greater Denver community. The goals of Launch Denver include helping participants write a business plan, create a pitch deck, create an MVP (minimum viable product) to show stakeholders and pitch their idea to potential stakeholders/investors/judges. Since its beginning Fall 2019, we have had 175 participants. The program is taught by a variety of professors, alumni and community partners, including The World Trade Center Denver.
