Emerson Launch, originally called The Emerson Accelerator, was designed, in response to an invitation from Emerson College President Lee Pelton, by two seniors who had already launched businesses, Tripp Clemens ’13 and Jake Bailey ’14. 

Launch has grown to reach students, established mentors, program alumni, and the larger Emerson community. Launch gives students a space to take their ideas or passions and transform them into a real project or product. We provide students with mentors who are successful entrepreneurs and innovators themselves, a physical space to work, and seed funding to invest in resources that will further help progress their ventures.

Emerson College is a hub for creativity and we believe our students can reach great heights once they are equipped with the right skills. We are dedicated to guiding Emerson students through the process of successful creation through passion and ideation. Watch a short video about us below-
