Innov8 is a new eight-week program designed to help emerging entrepreneurs develop their business concepts, hone business strategies, and build a business plan with actionable steps. This program provides entrepreneurial training and modest grant funding to University students, faculty, staff, and alumni interested in developing or commercializing any type of business idea. Program participants can apply for modest grant funding to conduct customer discovery, market research, or purchase supplies to create a prototype. Apply online by Friday, September 4, as team spots are limited. The inaugural cohort will run virtually from September 18 to November 6. Contact Matthew Spielmann at the Ain Center for Entrepreneurship with questions.
