A Tech Business Idea Could WIN You Up To $10,000!
STATE COLLEGE, PA – In the past eight years, more than 100 teams have graduated from Ben Franklin’s TechCelerator@State College. This successful partnership with the Invent Penn State initiative is offering local entrepreneurs, grad-students, professors, and university researchers a 10-Week Business Startup Boot Camp.
The weekly sessions will run on Tuesdays, April 7, 2020 – Tuesday, June 16, 2020 from 2:00 – 5:00 P.M. One-hour mentoring/coaching sessions will also be provided each week.
This is a no-cost opportunity! Assistance with legal, accounting, or customer discovery costs will be provided, and you’ll have the chance to pitch to a panel of judges at the completion of the course. The winning team will receive up to $10,000 in seed funding to help get their startup UP and running. In addition, select teams may also be eligible for a grant from the Invent Penn State NSF I-Corps Site.
Business mentoring from Ben Franklin’s Transformation Business Services Network and Penn State’s Small Business Development Center staff will also be available. You’ll come away from this experience with a working business model, networking contacts, and the confidence that comes from knowing if it’s the right time to start developing your innovation.
Space is limited, so don’t hesitate. The deadline for applications is March 26, 2020
