E-Team Propel Workshop Winter 2022

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

During Propel, your team will start to plan out and validate the pathway for your innovation, digging into business model design and mapping action plans to engage stakeholders and de-risk your venture. You'll cover topics including pricing and revenue models, strategic partnerships, and financial resources. Stage 2 provides your team with additional funding of up to $20,000. During this program, you will develop your business model hypotheses and a plan to test them and during the required three month period, you will execute on that plan to validate your business model.
