The application period for Fired Up closed at 5PM EST on August 15th, 2016.
Fired Up is a nine week program designed to test the ideas and accelerate the growth of startup companies. We use lean launchpad methodology to focus startups on “getting out of the building” through experimentation, customer feedback, and iterative design. Teams have weekly assignments, and a required weekly meeting with the rest of the cohort and coaches. Through a partnership with the USC/Columbia Technology Incubator, teams will have access to incubator co-work areas and a dedicated work space during the program. Teams will pitch their ideas at an event during Global Entrepreneurship Week.
Dates: September 15, 2016 - November 20, 2016
Investment: We will select 4-6 startup companies and invest up to $25,000 in each. We use a Simple Agreement for Future Equity, or SAFE, to offer flexible terms friendly to startup founders.
