  • Have the will and endurance to turn their labor into commercial success
  • Need help with startup capital, introductions, and navigating pitfalls
  • Are seeking rapid growth through venture capital
  • Are willing to be in Virginia for the entire 90-day program and commit to the venture full time
  • Are ideally comprised of a team of 2-4 people

Participants are encouraged to apply by June 1.
