We believe every student, idea, and startup has the possibility to do great things. To shape culture, disrupt business, and inspire change. We exist to propel that possibility.
We Look for 2 Types of People…
FOUNDERS: Those with an already developed, tested, and/or implemented business venture.
FREE AGENTS: Those who do not have a venture idea in mind, but are interested in unlocking their entrepreneurial potential.
We create a challenging environment that allows young entrepreneurs to thrive
From day one it’s 100mph, all in with your team. We encourage teams to throw themselves headfirst into the obstacles they encounter. Our alumni tell us this is the most strenuous, yet rewarding experience of their life.
Each morning we introduce a new concept. Afterwards, each team works with their advisors to tackle the most pressing issue they face, whether it be customer acquisition, marketing, or operations. There is no ‘standard approach’ or ‘right answer’, kind of like real life.
1 Demo Day
The Incubator culminates in Demo Day, where Founders pitch the startup and the successes they’ve had over the last 3 months to judges in the hopes of gaining valuable feedback, new mentors, and prospective seed-level investments.
