How does the Accelerator application process work?

August 19, 2017 by Lee Erickson
  1. Startups apply online by the deadline.
  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 12-15 startups to an in-person interview at the LaunchBox facility.
  4. We extend invitations to 7 – 9 startups to participate in the program.

We're looking for serious entrepreneurs who are ready to build and grow startups.
