Blackstone Launchpad Allows UTSA Entrepreneurs to Connect

Updated: Apr 24, 2021

There is now a larger network that allows Entrepreneurs from UTSA to connect and access resources, opportunities and mentorships. The $5 million expansion will allow the UTSA network to grow from two schools to eight schools: UT El Paso, UT Permian Basin, UT Rio Grande Valley, UTSA, UT Medical Branch and UT Southwestern. UT Austin and UT Dallas have been LaunchPad sites since 2016.

“Expanding LaunchPad to more UT institutions helps develop a more robust pipeline of student entrepreneurs in Texas. This experience will encourage them to generate new ideas and some day launch companies and drive job growth,” UT System Chancellor James B. Milliken said. “We are grateful to the Blackstone Charitable Foundation for its generous contribution and for its effort to reach a more diverse student population across Texas.”
