Here's how it works:

1) We find and vet 800+ top students so you don't have to.

Top engineering, computer science, business, media, and arts students apply to Launch in the fall and go through a vigorous multi-stage vetting process. Our acceptance rate is about 10%, and 50% of our accepted students are female.

2) We train them to become super-interns for 16 weeks.

Our proven proprietary training system gets students work-ready fast. We've trained over 1,000 students over the last 6 years. Our graduates have landed at Google, Twitter, Palantir, and dozens of fast-growing startups across the country. In Launch, we focus on four different tracks:

  • data science
  • software engineering
  • UX design
  • digital strategy (social/SEO/marketing)
We round out them out by teaching skills in project management, communication, presentations, and professionalism needed to succeed in the workplace.

3) We match students with companies to tackle big projects for 9 weeks.

Throughout the training process, we work closely with each company to find the best match based on each student's skillset, personal interests, and culture fit. For the remaining nine weeks of the summer, students then work as full-time interns or project consultants at the company's offices or remotely. (June 17 - August 16.)

4) Keep working with or hire your interns.

Roughly 50% of students continue working with their companies during the school year. Many companies have hired our graduates full-time immediately after the program.
