LaunchPad for Enterprise


Co-founded by Steve Blank, LaunchPad for Enterprise accelerates the commercialization of high-quality innovations.  Our proven methodology is the system standard used by the National Science Foundation's (NSF) Innovation-Corps (I-Corps), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

We offer on-site workshops, cohorts, and company-wide immersion in our 8-step “evidence-based innovation” process -- an approach that applies the scientific method to validate hypotheses about a potential business idea, enabling the highest quality ideas to rise to the surface, thereby de-risking your innovation decisions.  The result is a rapid sprint toward the true product-market fit that goes beyond "faith-based investment" to achieve scalable, sustainable impact.

LaunchPad has a robust track record of demonstrated success, with more than 5,000 teams in life sciences, digital health, medical devices, therapeutics, pharma, healthcare, insurance, technology, and consumer markets.
