Questions and Answers

When is the Spring 2018 program?

The Emory Startup Launch program will begin in January, 2018 and run on Thursday nights from 6pm-9pm.
 

 Jan 25
 Feb 1, 8, 15, 22
 Mar 29
 Apr 5, 12, 19, 26


The expectation is that all team members will attend all 10 weeks of class and demo day. 

Who can attend?

You!  


Your team only needs one Emory community member to qualify the entire team for the program.

 
The program is open to the entire Emory community, to help build and enhance the Emory student/faculty/staff/alumni entrepreneurial spirit by helping create successful startups. 

We are a non-profit may we apply?

Yes please!

I only have an idea on a napkin?

Please apply as completing the application will help you focus your idea and move it from a napkin to a page and that will be helpful.  We would love to hear from you. 

Is there funding for the teams?

Yes! It's a grant. Not a loan. We don't take equity.


Sure there is a catch.  We don't decide who gets the money until we are past week 5.  So your team has to attend and do the assignments in order to be eligible for the funding.


Then we have a process that lets the teams decide who gets funding.
