About Us

About NEO LaunchNET

NEO LaunchNET is a regional entrepreneurship education network of NEO LaunchNET colleges and universities that currently includes Baldwin Wallace University, Case Western Reserve University, Kent State University, and Lorain County Community College. We help our members to move their idea for a business or product from conception to reality. The services are available to all students and alumni, regardless of their area of study.

NEO LaunchNET has seeded more effective collaboration across each campus and among network campuses, generating support for the next generation of entrepreneurs in Northeast Ohio. Burton D. Morgan is committed to supporting NEO LaunchNET campuses as a key component of the extensive collegiate entrepreneurial ecosystem that stretches across the region. The Foundation works with all four NEO LaunchNET campuses to adapt program elements, incorporating the individual cultures and core strengths of each campus and encouraging the sharing of resources and best practices across the network.

Mission

Equally important, the program encourages an entrepreneurial mindset among all students on campus and an understanding that entrepreneurial skills are necessary for any career path in the 21st century. NEO LaunchNET prioritizes its educational mission to provide students with a robust entrepreneurial experience at the same time it augments and solidifies classroom learning.

Educating the next generation of entrepreneurs is critical to the economic revitalization of this country; NEO LaunchNET helps to revitalize on a regional scale using our region’s leading universities and colleges. We help fill the missing educational gap in higher education in Northeast Ohio at Baldwin Wallace University, Case Western Reserve University, Kent State University, and Lorain County Community College – the only community college location.
