Igniter Spring 2019 (apply by January 28)
Igniter is an intensive eight-week course focused on helping teams create and validate all aspects of their business model, preparing them to launch a startup company.
Igniter is a cohort-based course, meaning that a set number of teams (typically 15 or fewer) are admitted. Teams who are accepted into the cohort commit to having at least one (but ideally all) of their team members in attendance at all of the required sessions for the course. The Igniter course consists of eight weekly classroom sessions. See the schedule below for times. Cohort participants need to be able to dedicate 3-4 hours on average per week to advance their innovation outside of formal class and mentor meeting times during the program.
