iVenture Accelerator

Join the educational accelerator for top student startups

You have an innovative idea. What you need is a place to develop your concept. iVenture is that place.

iVenture is the universitywide innovation development program based in Gies College of Business. It provides nurturing opportunities for student-led startups to create social and economic value. Participants in iVenture receive the time, space, resources (up to $20,000), and mentorship needed to turn your idea into a scalable venture.



We support ventures creating tech, social, commercial, or cultural value. Past ventures have developed medical devices, nonprofits, ag-tech, and more. Take a look at the ventures we’ve worked with thus far – and apply to join us!

iVenture is looking for teams with the commitment and skills to solve important problems. If you have worked with users, built prototypes, recruited a team, and are already taking advantage of available campus resources – even better!
