Starting a business is hard and we want the Summer Institute to be accessible to everyone; not just those
with savings or financial support. For this reason, we invest in our participating ventures.
To make life easier as you start-up, we offer scholarships that cover basic living expenses.
These scholarships support up to three team members during the program.
We understand that capital is necessary to build your venture; so we have that covered. Each business will receive up to $2,000 for prototype development.
There is no fee to participate in the Summer Institute and zero equity taken from participating businesses. What we want is simple: to support good people who want to make a big impact.
This isn't your average corporate startup program. Each quarter you'll be eligible for a set of credits based your performance. You set the goals. We'll advise you on how to hit them. If you're in it to win it, let's do this.
