Blackstone LaunchPad is currently seeking BLASERs for Fall 2018! To highlight the program, we're featuring some of our BLASER success stories from the Spring 2018 cohort.

Keosha Mondesir is a junior International Trade major at UB. She decided to be a part of the BLASERs program because she wanted to be around creative thinkers and to learn more about herself and what it means to be an entrepreneur. Through this experience, she has learned the importance of being more outgoi...ng and speaking up. Being a BLASER has also helped her realize what she is interested in and how to go about pursuing those interests. Her major project as a BLASER involved marketing and promoting our Girls Get IT event. She also helped out with Women’s Prosperity, and helped create content for Motivational Mondays on social media.

Aishat Keshiro is a biology major who joined the BLASERs program to get a better understanding of entrepreneurship and to explore opportunities outside of her major. She has gained valuable networking skills by having conversations with people of different backgrounds and has learned about the work that goe...s into creating and executing events. Keshiro feels that the program helped with time management and made her more interested in opening her own business or aiding others in doing so. During her time as a BLASER, she helped with volunteering and outreach for the Girls Get IT event.

In her words: “I learned that when planning events, you don’t always see the impact of the event until afterwards. You see that you sparked creativity in others, and maybe made them interested in becoming an entrepreneur.”
