What is StartR?
The StartR program includes several accelerators, each targeting a specific area of interest. While each accelerator is focused on different interests, all include a series of workshops featuring relevant speakers as well as an opportunity to receive guidance from program leaders and mentors.
Application dates and requirements apply for each program so please check each carefully. No late applications are accepted. All accelerators are free of charge. Potential participants are welcome to apply for multiple programs, provided they meet the stated criteria.
