Startup Vikes is CSU’s premier entrepreneurship immersion experience in which student teams pitch ideas, learn the Lean Launch Pad (LLP) methodology and build minimum viable products or services. Supported by a team of mentors, workshop presenters and judges, students are purposefully introduced to the Northeast Ohio entrepreneurship ecosystem. For eight years, Startup Vikes has helped to launch 26 companies.
