Blackstone LaunchPad Member News
As you may be aware, the Walsh College Alumni Association is planning their 5th Annual Casino Night on Friday, March 21st at Star Lanes in Emagine Royal Oak. Once again, the Alumni Association asked if Blackstone LaunchPad would donate a basket featuring our members’ products. Last year’s basket (shown) was so impressive it became the VIP raffle prize! We asked our community of entrepreneurs and, despite their busy schedules and lack of funds (since most are true startups); once again they are generously donating. Thank you!
If you are a current Blackstone LaunchPad entrepreneur interested in donating an actual item, discount gift certificate for your services or products, etc., please contact the LaunchPad office at 248-823-1670 or email: email@example.com.
