Why Sponsor?


When we set out to create a new model for Accelerators, it was a imperative that we focus our effort on founders and founder wellness.  Too often, programs are aimed at teaching entrepreneurs how to pitch but leave out the foundation support for the founders and team.  The Entrepreneurship & Investment Challenge is a 12-week cohort-based program designed specifically to deliver the tools founders need to become leaders, establish a healthy company culture and focus on the tough issues they face as they raise capital.  With the help of a dynamic group of professionals and serial entrepreneurs, and with the guidance of partner organizations, we have developed a curriculum targeted at early-stage founders that will improve their chances to secure investment.  We hope you share our interest in engaging the tech-startup community, innovators, entrepreneurs, students, and young professionals..
