LaunchX Summer 2021
Our summer program taps into the potential of ambitious high school students, supporting you through the process of launching an actual startup. Join a highly-curated group of promising young entrepreneurs from around the globe to learn from industry experts, work in a group of peer co-founders, as well as build real products and solve business challenges in viable ways.
Key program components:
- Your startup: You develop a real startup!
- Course materials: You follow the LaunchX process developed by MIT and HBS alum through daily interactive classroom sessions, sprinkled with simulations, activities, and speakers.
- Mentorship: You are supported throughout by peer discussion groups, a team of mentors, and your instructors and interns.
LaunchX isn't a business plan competition - students start real companies. These startups are driven by using the design thinking process to discover innovative opportunities, backed by extensive market research, multiple iterations of prototypes and user testing, and gaining traction through getting real customers and partnerships.
Bringing a real product to the market is no small task. Your LaunchX experience will be challenging. It will be intense. And it will be worth it.
Team activities, simulations, and mentor meetings will immerse you in the entrepreneurial process and push you to stretch the limits of what you thought was possible. You’ll work with your team to put the course material lessons to work - applying your newfound knowledge and skills to bring your ideas to life.
Apply now to become a part of this amazing community.
We look for students who display initiative, impact, resilience, and collaboration. Let your entrepreneurial spirit show through in the application.
The application materials we ask for are as unique as the LaunchX program itself: you will put together a short video, answer some questions that give us a profile of your entrepreneurial propensity as an individual and how you'd contribute to a team and our community, plus your previous experience in activities and innovating. We're excited to get to know you through this process, and we hope you enjoy it as well!
