AgSprint Wants to Help You Bring Your Innovation to Market
AgSprint is looking for creative people with innovative ideas to be a part of its next cohort. Whether you want to launch a start-up, scale up your operations, or give your established business a competitive edge, this cohort may have the tools and resources you’re looking for.
As part of the cohort, start-ups receive five months of customized support tailored to each entrepreneur’s unique path to business development and financial success. The first three weeks will follow an NSF Innovation Corps (I-Corps) training model to test the feasibility of your idea. Through participation in AgSpring, you will receive $2,000 in participation support and attain the lineage necessary to compete for $50,000 through NSF I-Corps.
This cohort ditches the pitch days and will curate one-on-one meetings for entrepreneurs to interact directly with the Arrowhead Innovation Fund, corporate venture groups, banks, investor networks, and foundation and grant experts to help jump-start the fundraising process. It will even help you prepare cap tables, projections, forecasts, and grant budgets for financing opportunities.
In addition, one team will receive a $20,000 seed investment.
Deadline for applications is Wednesday, March 21, 2018. Learn more by visiting arrowheadcenter.nmsu.edu/agsprint/.
