31 Jan | E-Team Program: Pioneer


The E-Team Program, part of the VentureWell Accelerator, supports student ventures into innovation and entrepreneurship. The program helps advance inventions through a powerful mix of up to $25,000 in grant funding, entrepreneurship training, mentorship by dedicated staff, national recognition, and networking with peers and industry experts. VentureWell is seeking the following:

  • Social/Environmental Impact: Inventions that will scale to address a pressing social, health, or environmental need. We fund innovations that can solve challenges including health, food security, energy, and climate change.
  • Science- and Engineering-Based Inventions: An innovation that is different from other competing technologies.
  • Intent To Commercialize: A strong commitment to exploring commercialization of your innovation.
  • Student Team Identified: Teams that include two or more students and a faculty advisor.

Pioneer is the first stage of the E-Team program. Through $5,000 in non-dilutive funding and an entrepreneurship training workshop designed to help discover the best market for an invention, Pioneer kickstarts the potential and outlines the possible pathways for inventions.
