Are you a DU student working on a startup? Could you benefit from a summer accelerator to take your company to the next level?

Applications are now open for Pioneering Summer!

Pioneering Summer is a 10-week accelerator for student-led ventures. Project X-ITE will provide you with the resources you need to accelerate your startup and take it to the next level.

Here’s how it works:

  • Open to all DU undergraduate and graduate student-led ventures.
  • Companies must have at least 2 DU students to qualify as a “team”
  • Student teams are required to spend 20 hours per week in an internship of their choosing (Project X-ITE can help!), and 20 hours per week working together on their company

 

Here’s what you’ll get:

  • On campus or a housing stipend for each DU team member
  • A $5,000 cash stipend for your company
  • Physical workspace on campus in Project X-ITE’s X-Lab
  • Weekly mentor sessions with business leaders

 

Applications are open from November 6 – January 31. Project X-ITE will accept up to 24 students for Pioneering Summer 2018. Questions? Contact projectxite@du.edu
