Beginning in January, these organizations will support their partner startups throughout the program by facilitating key advisor introductions, pilots, research, and investment opportunities. Startups will also have access to a tailored curriculum, co-working office space, and the opportunity to apply for need-based scholarships at all zero cost and for zero equity.
