Congrats to our Emerson Launch Startup Bootcamp Spring 2020 alumni, Geaux Network and Vival Garco on the launch of their startups!  🎉

"The Geaux Network creates and curates multicultural content for and by people of color, including podcasts, radio shows, video streaming service, and soon, e-commerce."

"In 2019, Garcia and Ocando conceived Vival Garco, to promote Latin American culture and artwork by fostering creative partnerships with Latin American artists. Through the entrepreneurial bootcamp this summer, Ocando and Garcia hashed out business plans, including marketing strategies to amass a following and customer base." - Emerson Launch Startup Bootcamp shapes student and alumni business plans

We are thrilled to be working with Emerson Launch students over the next academic year to help make their startup ideas a reality.  💡


We are excited to partner with Miro on the Startups Program!  🤝🏻

We’ve been using Miro to run Design Sprints and find it incredibly useful for whiteboarding, mapping and collaborating in real time. We believe that Miro can help startup teams collaborate faster, inspire new ideas during interactive meetings, and design products that keep user research front and center.  🎨

All our teams new to Miro will get $1,000 in credits to grow their social impact startup.
