Our Programs

CREATE-X offers entrepreneurship programs for all students, from incoming freshmen and undergraduate students of all years, to masters and Ph.D. students. The programs are organized into three categories: LEARN, MAKE and LAUNCH.

CREATE-X LEARN

LEARN

The CREATE-X LEARN element consists of a class that exposes students to startup concepts and teaches them the methodology of evidence-based entrepreneurship. Through LEARN, Startup Lab gives students a zero risk opportunity to examine their startup ideas within the context of their formal education and enables them to identify business failures in the lab instead of in the market.

CREATE-X MAKE

MAKE

The CREATE-X MAKE element consists of a set of research and prototyping classes that enable students to overcome technology barriers that might lie in the way of them launching a successful venture. Through MAKE, Idea to Prototype and CREATE-X Capstone provide students with prototyping grants, mentorship, and curricular credit as they create intellectual property and build prototypes toward their venture idea.

CREATE-X LAUNCH

LAUNCH

The CREATE-X LAUNCH element consists of a program for students and alumni who want to launch their projects from idea stage (or beyond) into fully functioning and viable startups. Through LAUNCH, Startup Launch provides teams with $5,000 in seed funding and $30,000 worth of in-kind services, including legal and accounting services, coaching, space, mentorship, visibility, and IP protection.

"CREATE-X is working to establish Georgia Tech as the number one startup campus in the nation with the most funded student startup enterprises."
