Before You Book The Space:

The Space

The Blackstone LaunchPad space is located in the foyer of the Berkeley Library. It is an event and collaboration space that aims to give student entrepreneurs, founders, start-up companies, and the entrepreneurs of the future a space to work on and progress their ideas. 

Since we launched in February 2016, the LaunchPad space has been host to a variety of different events and talks, including ‘Dev, Meet Tech’; #BYOLunchPad LinkedIn for Entrepreneurs; Skype calls between the UN World Food Program and some student-led social enterprises; pitch workshops for LaunchBox potential teams; Founder Fireside Talks with Ushuru; and many more. 

The Space should be used for:

- Student company and start-up meetings, including planning or creative sessions, informal team meetings, and anything else required by our student companies and start-ups

- The progression of social enterprises, like ‘Dev, Meet Tech’, and other not-for-profit ventures

- Events with external or internal speakers relating to entrepreneurship and innovation

- Initial sessions (however informal) with and for students who are interested in becoming entrepreneurs or involved with student start-ups

- Pitch workshops and feedback sessions for potential LaunchBox teams, and other student start-ups seeking funding 

- Student society events and student-run events, when the theme of the event is related in some way to entrepreneurship and innovation

- Individual founders and students working on their companies and ideas

- Student artists who wish to exhibit their work for sale, or use the space as a workshop 

- Other events and activities relating to entrepreneurship, start-ups and innovation

- The space can be made available for other uses subject to availability
