Lion LaunchPad needs Penn State alumni, faculty, entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and experienced business people from all disciplines to work with entrepreneurial student teams as they move from initial product ideas to commercial viability.
Our goal is to link mentors with specific skills, experiences and interests with student teams who need help and advice in that same area, as well as general mentoring on the ups and downs of starting a new venture.
Lion LaunchPad co-directors and faculty advisers will select mentors to meet the specific needs of the student teams. The student team will be responsible for contacting each mentor, providing specific background on their new product or venture, and beginning a dialogue.
