Startup Launch


Georgia Tech’s CREATE-X Startup Launch 2021 will be the eighth iteration of the program. The program has helped launch more than 100 companies founded by students like you.

Apply for Startup Launch and receive a $4,000 grant and additional services to get your company off the ground. Since the funding is given as a grant, you don’t give up any equity in your startup. You will also receive:

  • Intense coaching from experienced entrepreneurs and business faculty
  • Mentorship from industry veterans
  • Pro-bono legal services from a full-service law-firm 
  • Free accounting services from a CPA firm including tax planning and compliance
  • 24/7 access to co-working office space
  • Access to hundreds of investors at Demo Day
  • An opportunity to receive additional funding ($20K-$100K) at the end of the program

If you are interested in launching companies like FIXD, Gimme, Grubbly Farms, Replantable, Stord, iSimuVR, and TINA Healthcare, applications for Startup Launch 2021 are open now.
