BIT Launch Accelerator

October 2, 2023 – October 30, 2023 | Application Deadline September 25, 2023

Startup founders in the idea and pre-revenue phase, we want you. This initiative addresses the following: founder mindset, scalable business model design, pre-accelerator training, mentoring, networking, and connecting founders to funding opportunities.

It’s important for us to make sure that our BIT startup founders have access to the knowledge they need to build successful high-tech businesses. Through this program our startup founders will develop the proper mindset and learn the best practices for building a startup before investing years of time and large sums of money in a startup idea. It’s free to join. 

  • Find out how to create and stress test scalable business models for your idea.
  • Up to 30 participants will compete for $3,000 in cash prizes.
  • Attend an orientation session and 4 two hour workshops, one each week starting Monday, Oct 2, 2023, at 6 PM CST.  All workshops are recorded so don’t worry if you can’t make one.
  • The deadline to apply is Monday, Sept 25, 2023.
  • Prepare for Startup Programs (Pitch Competitions, Accelerator Programs and Corporate In-Kind Offers).
  • Existing pre-revenue startups are also welcome to apply if they want to determine their viability.
