Upcoming Ithaca PSW

Refer to the idea status table  to see whether your idea would benefit from the PSW. The Workshop is ideally designed for teams who have already attended CCTEC Bootcamp but at a stage before companies have sales revenues or have attracted significant venture capital.

The next Pre-Seed Workshop scheduled for Ithaca, NY will be in the Fall of 2014, on September 11,12, and 19. Applicants and team participants MUST be available for both full sessions. 80% of your time will be spent in hands-on group sessions. Teams are created around a central technology, product or business idea and typically include a technology champion, a legal advisor, an industry expert, an MBA student and an experienced entrepreneur to constitute the Idea Team. THIS IS NOT A LECTURE SERIES.

Also refer to other upcoming Regional Pre-Seed Workshops.
