Do you have an idea? Then get your team together! Pick people from disciplines necessary to make you successful. Not sure how? Come to our OFFICE in the new Innovation Space in Willson 2nd floor ! Huddle over your idea and submit your application this Summer to get a HEADSTART for the Fall by answering only five questions.
FORM YOUR IDEA
You may have had an idea all along. Your design projects really got you interested in a specific problem and you are determined to find a solution? You don’t have an idea, but want to be part of a team that does some cool development and helps change the world?
Then ACCELERATE, the Innovation + Entrepreneurship Challenge, is right for you. Learn more about the process and benefits and visit our Office, Innovation Space, Willson 2nd floor.
RECRUIT YOUR TEAM
You are better together! Assemble and recruit your team. The talent you want is most likely diverse and comes from different disciplines, so you can cover different aspects of your product/service idea development and ACCELERATE.
If you know your team already – great – you are ready to submit your idea. If you don’t have all your talent yet, don’t worry – you have a chance to interview and scout talent during the ACCELERATE open house.
You can also sign up with ePowerhouse, the Linkedin for entrepreneurs – people that are looking to join a team, will check out the postings and signal their interest via email. Hopefully find a good match. If not, you’ll continue the search, but already gained valuable experience conducting and participating in networking and recruiting conversations.
SUBMIT YOUR IDEA
Fill out a basic submission form. All it does is alert us that you are interested in the process and that you are committed to learning all you can about innovation + entrepreneurship. Here are the five questions:
- What is your idea about?
- Which problem does it solve?
- What impact does it have to the world?
- Who is on your team?
- What are the milestones to make your idea a reality?
