U of L takes “LaunchIt” virtual for second year, allowing broader participation

LaunchIt,” the University of Louisville’s 10-week entrepreneurial bootcamp, has taken its training online and expanded to serve innovators and university researchers throughout the Midwest and Southeast.

Historically, “LaunchIt” training had been done in person in downtown Louisville, but in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, program leaders took the bootcamp online. This allowed innovators to participate remotely — and from farther away. The spring 2020 virtual pilot cohort included entrepreneurs from Michigan, Arkansas, Mississippi, West Virginia and across Kentucky.

Registration is open through February 9 for the spring virtual cohort, which again will accept researchers from XLerator Network Hub partner institutions and universities across Kentucky.
