About Blackstone LaunchPad

The UNF Coggin College of Business received a grant from the Blackstone Charitable Foundation in 2023 to establish the Blackstone LaunchPad to provide entrepreneurship and entrepreneurial skills programs that prepare students for successful careers. The Blackstone LaunchPad develops events and programs for students across UNF while building peer and professional networks. 


UNF Entrepreneurship Ecosystem

In addition to the Blackstone LaunchPad, the Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation connects entrepreneurs with the University, community, and industry partners to foster innovation in North Florida. Meanwhile the Florida Small Business Development Center at UNF provides consulting and training for entrepreneurs.
