Hands on Training for Investors
We run workshops for investors to understand
the requirements to conduct due diligence on a company.
The investors then conduct this due diligence.
Company applications are the real world examples for our investors to analyze. The investors study the applications to identify which companies demonstrate strengths to make them successful. Through active discussions, the investors select finalists which are showcased at a final demo day (end of March). The winning company receives a $200,000* of pooled investment funds. *Actual amount invested depends on the total dollars raised.View our schedule
