Experience Free
Hands-On Labs

Instantly experience end-to-end workflows for AI, data science, 3D design collaboration, and more.

What is NVIDIA LaunchPad?

NVIDIA LaunchPad is a free program that provides users short-term access to a large catalog of hands-on labs. Now enterprises and organizations can immediately tap into the necessary hardware and software stacks to experience end-to-end solution workflows in the areas of AI, data science, 3D design collaboration and simulation, and more.

LaunchPad helps developers, designers, and IT professionals speed up the creation and deployment of modern, data-intensive applications. After quick testing and prototyping, the same complete stack can be deployed for production workflows, so more confident software and infrastructure decisions can be made.
