Zahn Innovation Platform Launchpad
The Launchpad is an incubator for students that aids the development of business plans and small business growth
With a gift from Irwin Zahn and the Moxie Foundation, the Zahn Innovation Center opened in 2012. In 2016 the name was changed to the Zahn Innovation Platform Launchpad. Since its opening, the Zahn Innovation Platform Launchpad has been supporting San Diego State University innovators and aspiring entrepreneurs as they transform their ideas into companies.
The Lavin Entrepreneurship Center has been working in collaboration with the Zahn Innovation Platform Launchpad to expand the capabilities of SDSU students. This launchpad provides a holistic approach in the preparation of the next generation of entrepreneurs. The Lavin Entrepreneurship Center focuses on building and developing entrepreneurial competencies in students through programs, internships, and curriculum. The Zahn Innovation Platform Launchpad is an on campus commercial and social incubator for all aspiring entrepreneurs including staff, faculty, and students.
The Zahn Innovation Platform Launchpad invites the opportunity for teams to apply to be admitted into the incubator. Accepted teams have access to a variety of free resources including 24/7 collaborative working spaces, business acumen provided by the Lavin Entrepreneurship Center, pro bono legal services, a mentor, prototyping services, assistance building their team with SDSU talent, and much more. All of the resources made available to our participants are provided at no cost.
