Student Accelerator 2018

Launch Your Future

Start your summer with the Hawkeye Summer Accelerator program. Throughout the program, Accelerator teams will meet daily to launch their startup by using Lean LaunchPad methodologies. Through workshops, sessions with experienced mentors, weekly pitches, and lectures, the Hawkeye Summer Accelerator aims to drive the startup process for students, while increasing their startups' chance for success. Once a week, teams will meet to discuss their progress in meeting milestones, as well as learn about other key Business Model Canvas concepts. Participants will have access to industry partners that can coach them on accounting, taxes, IP, and funding issues. The teaching team and mentors will be on hand throughout the summer to oversee completion of milestones, and help teams reach their goals.
