Geekdom Incubator

The Geekdom Incubator is an 8-week program designed to help first-time founders and early-stage entrepreneurs refine their startup ideas, learn business basics, build their network, and take the first steps towards traction.

Participants
Who is this program for?
To apply you must have an idea or early-stage company looking for advisement and growth (do not have to be a formalized company, but can become one during the program). We're looking for passionate individuals who want to build a scalable, innovative company and can commit to attending all program sessions.
Company Selection
How are companies chosen?
The Geekdom Programs team, along with key Geekdom stakeholders, will review the applications and select up to 10 companies that show promise of continuing growth within the Geekdom community. Before final selections are made interviews may be conducted to better understand program fit.
Program Overview
What will I do during the 8 weeks?
Founders in the Incubator will learn the essentials of starting a business through weekly workshops and mentor sessions, facilitated by the Geekdom Programs team and industry experts. Topics covered will include: identifying your potential customers, how to conduct market research, solidifying your unique value proposition, developing a minimal viable product, financial modeling, creating a business plan, and building a pitch deck. The program culminates in a public showcase event.
