Launch and scale your idea to positively impact lives.



SEPTEMBER 28, 2019


The Launch Camp provides GWU innovators that are exploring starting a venture a safe space to explore and launch their idea. Throughout the program, you will have access to mentors, content experts, SEED SPOT's curriculum, and a network of supporters.

This is a free event (valued at $1000 per person) open to all current GW students, alumni, faculty, and staff. Recent alumni who are interested in consideration can contact GW to request admission.

Are you a GWU student, faculty, or staff who has been sitting on an innovative business idea? Have you identified a problem you wanted to solve? Do you have that itch to start something that will make the world a better place?

Join us at Launch Camp at George Washington University to turn your idea into reality. You will receive the business training, step-by-step curriculum, and support needed to set your venture up for success. Through this Launch Camp, you will be prepared to pitch during the upcoming Pitch George Competition on Oct. 5 and then submit for the GWU New Venture Competition in the Spring!

"There was an abundance of advice, resources and support to meet each "boot camper's" needs and although we were all at different stages in our businesses, SEED SPOT met each of us where we were. This program is a must for any entrepreneur in the valley!”
