iVenture Accelerator

Join the educational accelerator for top student startups

Have your own idea for a new business? A mobile app? Wearables? Electronics? A meaningful nonprofit? The iVenture Accelerator, a part of the Origin Ventures Academy for Entrepreneurial Leadership, is a university-wide program based in Gies College of Business that provides nurturing opportunities for student-led startups to create economic and social value. You receive the time, space, resources (up to $20,000), and mentorship needed to turn your idea into a scalable venture.

We’re looking for exceptional venture teams with the commitment and skills to solve important problems. If you have worked with users, built prototypes, have recruited a team, and are already taking advantage of available campus resources—even better!

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