ARE YOU READY TO TAKE THE NEXT STEP IN REALIZING YOUR ENTREPRENEURIAL DREAM?
If you have an idea for a product or service that solves a problem or satisfies a need, then apply to participate in the UTRGV CIC’s inaugural iVenture cohort of startup founders.
We are seeking aspiring entrepreneurs to apply to participate in the UTRGV Center for Innovation & Commercialization’s inaugural iVenture cohort. Up to ten founders will be selected to participate in this six – week program and will get an opportunity to develop their business ideas, connect with other founders and exchange feedback. The goal of the iVenture program is to help aspiring entrepreneurs develop their business idea so they can make a go- or no-go decision. We want to help founders find out if their ideas have legs, and if they do, then find a strategy to go to market. If the idea does not have potential for commercialization, then we want founders to find out now rather than spend their hard-earned money and valuable time developing something that does not have commercialization potential.
