Application

How does the application process work?

1

Interested startups apply.

Applications for our Fall Accelerator program will open late August.

2

Selection Committee reviews applications.

Our Selection Committee, comprised of local entrepreneurs, Invent Penn State staff, entrepreneurship faculty, local investors, and a recent LaunchBox graduate, reviews applications and makes recommendations on teams that would benefit most from the program.

3

Selected teams invited to in-person interviews.

We invite 10 – 12 startups to an in-person interview at the LaunchBox facility.

4

Invitations extended to final teams.

We extend invitations to 5 – 7 startups to participate in the Accelerator. Collectively we find a convenient time for weekly group and 1-on-1 meetings.
