How does the application process work?

January 19, 2017 by ips_admin
  1. Startups apply online to for one of our 3 accelerator programs (spring, summer, or fall).
  2. A Selection Committee comprised of local business owners, representatives from Invent Penn State, entrepreneurial faculty at Penn State, a recent graduate of the LaunchBox accelerator, and a representative from an undergraduate entrepreneurial club, review all applications and provide feedback against a defined set of criteria.
  3. We invite 10-12 startups to an in-person interview at the LaunchBox facility.
  4. We extend invitations to 5- 7 startups to participate in the program.

Looking for $10K to jump start your venture? The Summer Founders Program may be a great opportunity.
