E-Team Pioneer Workshop Winter 2024

Our E-Team Program gives college students the chance to move new tech ideas out of the lab and classroom and into the marketplace. The three-stage program provides grant funding, experiential workshops, expert coaching, and a potential investment opportunity to help teams manifest their projects' full commercial potential.

The Stage 1 E-Team Program provides $5,000 in grant funding to participate in the two-day in-person Pioneer workshop, where you will learn how to better articulate the opportunity for your innovation in the marketplace. Funds may be used on technology development and customer discovery.

During Pioneer, you will discover possible pathways for your venture, understand the important role inclusive team dynamics play in team performance, and create action plans to check fundamental assumptions. The workshop is designed to build your entrepreneurial skills and confidence as you explore essential topics like customer discovery, intellectual property, and market validation. Your team will collaborate with high-caliber peers and work closely with our dedicated teaching team as you map out the path for launching your invention. Your team will have access to coaching opportunities and mentoring after the completion of the workshop.
