Venture College Incubator
Registration is now closed for the Fall 2020 Venture College Incubator. Be sure to check back soon for information on the Spring 2021 Incubator.
Students will meet each Thursday to discuss their business ideas and progress, learn new start-up concepts to build traction, and set goals for the following week. This 10-week not-for-credit program is designed to help launch your business and gain more traction.
Need help generating an idea? We help students find an idea by ideation sessions – which help analyze ideas and formulate initial plans.
Need help launching your idea? We help with prototyping, launch strategies, and getting your idea in front of customers.
Need help accelerating your idea? We can connect you with mentors and industry experts, office space, and seed funding.
Students who engage with Venture College are eligible for mentoring services. In addition to meeting with Venture College staff, we can connect you with professionals in our business network, including access to CEO’s, marketing professionals, lawyers, non-profit specialists, and more.
Our incubator is the only full-time, residential lab for Boise State student entrepreneurs. Whether you need open co-working space or a dedicated team area, Venture College can provide your team with the space it needs to accelerate.
Venture College students who are actively accelerating their ideas may be eligible for seed funding up to $3,000. Students will pitch their ideas and progress to Venture College staff and community members for grant consideration. If awarded, the seed funding is considered an entrepreneurial grant. The grant money does not require company equity.
Access To Student Interns
Venture College works with cross-disciplinary students who are eager to help you launch and grow your idea. Interns can help you with logo work, marketing materials, competitive research, websites, and much more. If approved, student teams receiving intern help will not be required to pay for services received.
