Launched in 2022, BlueLaunch is the newest accelerator supporting Rice-affiliated small businesses.
Programming will be tailored for the non-tech small business entrepreneur. BlueLaunch builds on the decades-long success of Rice University's Startup Accelerator, OwlSpark, which focuses on customer development and business models.
BlueLaunch takes an actionable approach, helping participants enhance and grow their businesses from day one of the program. Program curriculum, personalized mentoring and exposure to Rice and Houston’s entrepreneurial resources will support entrepreneurs through customer development, brand refinement, product expansion and business strategy.
Participating earns you a $1,000 monthly stipend, and both programs are open to Rice University students, faculty, staff and recent alumni.
