How it Works.
It’s an entrepreneur’s dream. Come up with the big idea. Present it to investors. Raise money to make it happen. Whether you’re a student entrepreneur with that dream or just daydreaming about a big idea in class, it’s time to get started.

What we’re looking for.
We’re searching for college students (undergrad, graduate and recent grads 1-3 years out of school) with business ideas that focus on web, social or mobile design and technology. That includes applications like Facebook, Groupon, Evernote and Box.Net. And gadgets like the iPad, Android and Playbook.
Your idea might be something that works with or on those things. Or it might be a game changer that brings something brand new to the scene. Whatever it is, we want to hear about it.

What you get.
Up to $18,000 to cover time and expenses while you work on the idea.
Office space, desks, chairs and Internet access.
Assistance with paperwork, including getting the business incorporated.
Mentoring from entrepreneurs, designers and software engineers.
Networking with business leaders.

What you need to do.
Getting a big idea off the ground takes a lot of energy and a solid plan. You’ve got the energy and we’ve got the plan. We’ll need your focus and commitment for 12 weeks. If we get that, you’ll produce:
Business plan that outlines how you’ll bring your idea to market.
Working prototype of the design/technology to prove it can work.
Visual and oral presentation to pitch your idea to funders.

Where to go.

This is so cool. I am an Edgewood Math major and I hope to be all over this!

Not that it's necessary, but I can vouch that this is a legitimate local opportunity that anyone should take full advantage of - sometimes there are similar posts online for fake opportunities so please be cautious out there :-)

Something also offered at Sector67 is help preparing for and winning competitions/opportunities like this. Sector67 was formed with money stemming from 5 years of competitions at UW (over 14 events with 7 different ideas).
