12:00am – 11:59pm

Hartford: Graduate Business Learning Center

Summer Fellowship is UConn’s startup accelerator program and is an immersive entrepreneurial experience open to anyone affiliated with UConn (students, faculty, staff and alumni). Summer Fellowship is CCEI’s flagship program and has prepared startups to launch their company, generate revenue, raise funding (grants, investments, etc.), and be accepted into next step opportunities such as incubators and accelerator programs.

The top ten startups from across the University are selected to participate in the Summer Fellowship experience. This program takes place 3 days a week over 8 weeks (June-August) where participants develop the skills needed to bring new products, services, and technologies to market. Each startup team receives one-on-one coaching and mentorship from industry experts and experienced entrepreneurs. Teams are provided with pro-bono legal and accounting services to help with initial business setup and support.

Teams pursuing high-potential ventures who have formed through participation in other UConn entrepreneurship programs are encouraged to apply.
