The ISU Startup Factory is recruiting for its Spring 2023 cohort.
The ISU Startup Factory is an incubator program for startup founders looking to validate their scalable startup idea. Entrepreneurs receive training, resources, guidance, and access to a network of mentors, Startup Factory alumni, and advisors.
The Spring program will run from January 9 – May 16, and meet from 10-12 on Tuesdays and 9-10 on Thursdays over Zoom.
During the 18-week program, innovators will develop their business acumen, enhance their communication skills, and learn about their customers. This curriculum will prepare them to pursue non-dilutive funding as they continue developing their technology and commercialization plans.
Options to graduate to one of Iowa’s accelerators or other startup programs are available, along with programming to sustain regular mentorship, supported through the ISU Startup Factory.
Applications are due December 2.
ISU Startup Factory & G2M showcase
On Tuesday, December 6, the ISU Startup Factory’s twelfth cohort and Iowa G2M Accelerator’s second cohort will be hosting a Demo Day event.
Demo Day is your chance to hear from, and connect with, the startups who have completed each of the two cohorts.
Following founder presentations, will be a networking reception where attendees can connect with founders and mentors, learn more about the Startup Factory and G2M programs, and celebrate these founders’ successes.
