Student Groups

As a student at GW with interest in innovation and entrepreneurship, you can connect with like-minded undergraduate and graduate students in your respective school. The clubs available on campus include:

GW Startups Club

The GW Startups Club is open to all GW students, both on undergraduate and graduate levels. The purpose of the club is to develop business, service, and product ideas into actionable ventures by creating an open forum for discussion and networking. Members meet on a weekly basis to present startup ideas and provide constructive feedback and best practices sharing. Outside speakers are often invited to provide additional insights on select entrepreneurship topics.

Contact GW Startups Club President, Sarah Shavin, for more information.

The LaunchPad

Starting a business is appealing, but daunting. The LaunchPad provides structure and encouragement for students interested in engaging with entrepreneurship but struggling to take the first step. We'll be working in small motivated teams to brainstorm business ideas, conduct market research, build a business plan, develop a prototype, seek out mentors in the industry, work toward financial and non-material backing, and learn what it takes to establish a product or company from scratch. We meet weekly to brainstorm, form teams to build out ideas generated from the initial brainstorming sessions, and present our progress to professional mentors throughout the year. By early March, this process culminates in a presentation of a full working pitch modeled after the TV show Shart Tank.

Contact LaunchPad President, Sebastian Hood, for more information.
