Application Deadline: 2021 New Ventures Challenge
June 7, 2021
Each of the 2021 New Ventures Accelerators starts with a Challenge – an idea competition that offers startup teams the opportunity to win seed funding, a 12-week accelerator delivered on the LMS, and access to industry experts and teams of mentors. Winning teams will be awarded cash prizes and follow-up investments with an average $50,000 investment per team in return for a 7.5% equity stake.
The New Ventures Challenge 2021 startup competition is accepting applications into four pipelines covering Health/Wellness/Nutrition, AgTech, B2B Software, and Come Up for Minority Founders. Qualifying companies will range from formative inception to early-stage technology-enabled companies, typically before raising a Series Seed financing round.
Selected teams will benefit from Flywheel’s success over 5 years developing curriculum focused on current skills in technology, marketing, leadership, operations, and finance. In addition to pre- and post-revenue startup teams and companies, student teams from accredited higher education institutions are encouraged to apply.
