What is LaunchBox? 

LaunchBox is Trinity's summer accelerator programme open to teams of students with an early-stage business or social enterprise. The programme provides mentorship, funding, access to alumni and investors, and the ideal collaborative environment to launch a new startup venture.

Trinity prides itself on its students’ innovation, enterprise, courage, and creativity, and LaunchBox is a perfect example of these qualities. We aim to empower students to forge and follow their own path through entrepreneurship, and this is made possible through the support for such projects both within Trinity and within the startup ecosystem.


Testimonials: The LaunchBox Experience

After LaunchBox I’ve never questioned my ability to start a business, and it’s something I would have had reservations about before. It made me really think about what I’m doing and what challenges I might face along the way, and I feel that I am ready for these challenges now.
