LAUNCHES SEPT. 19 2017
An entrepreneurial training program and startup pitch contest. Zuventurez pitch is taught, coached, and judged by startup founders, angel investors, and business professionals. Student and alumni teams validate their business ideas and problem statements by competing against one another to win a $15,000 prize.
An 18-week program that offers student and alumni teams who have some traction (e.g., business revenue and/or user growth) an opportunity to develop their business. The teams utilize APU hosted workspaces, and weekly work sessions where our program participants hear about the experiences of startup founders. We partnered with FLDWRK - a local organization with a similar mission and vision led by two APU alums - to launch Zuventurez Incubate.
A program that provides more advanced mentorship opportunities, industry connections, and opportunities for founders to pitch their startups to angel investors and venture capitalist.
A collaborative effort with other entrepreneurial programs to make our startup community stronger. Zuventurez Partnership represents our commitment to working with entrepreneurial programs from the startup community like ourselves.
