NEXTUP Advancing Indiana’s Rising Startups
June 1, 2021
July cohort (July 12th-16th) is now open for Black and Brown founders through June 1st!
According to the Kauffman Foundation, all new job roles are created by startup companies less than 5 years old. That’s why a healthy startup community is vital to the future of our State.
NEXT Studios is all about advancing startup companies. That’s why NEXT has created the NEXT UP Discovery Week: an intense week of activities focused on helping founders start their entrepreneurial journey.
Every month NEXT focuses on a different community of underserved entrepreneurs: communities where the traditional venture capital system has not delivered.
As a founder, you’ll get a once-in-a-lifetime experience in launching an idea into a company. As sponsor, you’ll get the chance to associate your brand with the creation of new startups.
The future is all about innovation and entrepreneurship. That’s the community you want to be in, and the place for you to be.
THE NEXT UP DISCOVERY WEEK FOCUS:
ENSURING THE IDEA SOLVES A REAL PROBLEM FOR REAL CUSTOMERS
IDENTIFYING THE MARKETS THE COMPANY SERVES
DISCOVERING THE PERSONALITY PROFILE OF
CREATING LASTING MENTOR RELATIONSHIPS
DEFINING THE SCOPE OF THE PROTOTYPE
