The Build-Up Accelerator focuses on companies from a range of verticals located in Northeastern Wisconsin. However, technology must be a key differentiator in how the business generates value.
Please keep in mind that this program is for technology startups rather than small businesses. All are welcome to apply. Women, minorities, veterans, and other underrepresented groups are encouraged to apply.
It is understood that that you are likely working on this part-time, thus a full-time commitment is not expected. This program does require a weekly commitment of 3 to 4 hours, which includes virtual class time.
You will be expected to be spending additional time outside of that to develop or create your MVP. However, it’s your idea/company, and you call the shots.
Passionate applicants are being sought who will take advantage of all this program has to offer. Hungry entrepreneurs will benefit from this program.
Companies will be selected from a range of verticals. However, technology must be a key differentiator in how the business generates value. Applications close on Sunday, February 19th, 2023, at 11:59pm CST.
