Startup Labs is a program that helps to foster students' startup ideas. We work with students to create an environment that provides innovative students feedback and guidance for their pursuit of specific entrepreneurial endeavors.

Each quarter, we welcome a new collaborative cohort into the program and guide them to success through workshops, close mentorship, and social events.

Startup Labs is dedicated to fostering entrepreneurial spirit and engagement at UCLA, and with our resources and network of successful entrepreneurs and investors, Startup Labs aims to grow ideas into reality.


Our quarter long program will consist of weekly meetings dedicated to business development and improving your ideas. During these weekly meetings, we will have interactive and informative sessinos along with a collborative workshopace to allow your ideas to flourish.

Our curriculum will cover concepts of idea generation, basic finance, market analysis, along with other entrepreneurial topics necessary to drive innovation and entrepreneurial growth. Additionally, members will have access to an array of resources and guidance, and be able to netweork with a group of like minded entrepreneurs.


Each team will be partnered with a mentor with whom they will have an initial meeting. After this, students will be encouraged to connect regularly with their mentors during 'office hours'. The mentors will be available to provide guidance, advice and essential skills whilst also being a opportunity for the students to network and further their entrepreneurial spirit.
