Do you want to launch a new venture? Want to know what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur? Have a great idea that you've been toying with? Need feedback on a prototype? 

Each week Stanford professors Perry Klebahn and Jeremy Utley host the Launchpad Venture Hub—a space for students and the broader public to get expert feedback and advice on business ideas and prototypes.

That's right, you don't have to be a Stanford student and you don't need an appointment! This is a free, low stakes opportunity for anyone needing guidance about a new venture.
