WE ARE TROY LABS
We are laser focused on supporting Trojan companies.
We bridge beyond the university, facilitating greater real world impact from existing resources.
Community engagement is hugely important to our mission.
A community-focused mindset is what allows us to launch new initiatives and connect with the entrepreneurs, investors, and consumers who can benefit from our offerings. That's why we host a myriad of community-focused content programming.
Fireside chats, workshops, speaker panels, pitch competitions, and more! We typically host 2-3 events per semester (including Demo Day) to get the community at large involved.
We use our mailing list sparingly. We want to everyone to have access to information about what we're up to and to provide insight into the the state of entrepreneurship at USC.
We will be interviewing industry experts, VC's, founders and professors, as well as discussing developments in tech.
