Twenty student companies at the University of Utah moved in their equipment to the Company Launch space at Lassonde Studios on Aug. 25. The spaces allocated to these student teams include shared tables, desks and private offices. The Company Launch program gives student companies access to resources and space that would only be available to other companies at a premium.
Eric Smith, student chair of Cowork and Company Launch, described how he felt seeing students move into their space for the first time: “I couldn’t be happier for the student teams we have moving into this space. They have already begun collaboration amongst themselves. These teams are really going to set a new pace for entrepreneurship here at Lassonde Entrepreneur Institute and the University of Utah.”
