    My S in sophomore year is planning to apply for 2018. but he has no experience running any business except that he attended a short entrepreneur summer camp and did an internship with a professor at a business school. any chance for him? thanks

    Yes of course he has a chance. It is not a necessity to have started a buisness. You are right that a lot of people do, and thats good, but it is not required. Launch cares more about your initative, grit, determination, and perseverence. They want to see you push yourself outside of your comfort zone and take leadership in whatever opportunities he has. Good luck!

    When does registration open? And I can't access the website because of a "privacy error". Anyone know anything about that?

    The website has been updated
    http://www.launchx.com/

    Is it just going to be Launch now? It seems like they're hosting the program at a few other campuses, I guess it won't be "MIT Launch" anymore. Sounds cool though!

    It is going to be LaunchX. There will be LaunchX Summer Program, LaunchX Clubs, and an online course.

    Hello, would you happen to know if Launch X is a full replacement for MIT Launch? And, do you happen to have any idea about proposed locations for the newly formed Launch X? Would students have to option to apply to more than one location? Thanks so much !

    LaunchX will still have its summer program at MIT. They may expand into other universities. When you apply, I believe you can pick your preferred location. You will be applying to all campuses, but you will only be accepted into one. That is the way it worked for the time they had 2 sessions at MIT.
