WERCBench Labs Update AIP Preview
WERCBench Labs is now accepting applications for the third year of our Advanced Innovation Program (AIP). This is the follow-on program to the Early-Stage Start-Up program that just completed its third year.
The AIP Program is an eight-week intensive accelerator working with start-ups on advanced business techniques in preparation for investors, marketing and PR, board and advisory board selection and growth strategy. The focus is on investor-readiness.
M-WERC and WERCBench Labs have opened the application process for the Advanced Innovation Program (AIP) starting in February.
The screening application must be completed and submitted on-line by midnight on February 12th. Here is the link - https://www.f6s.com/wercbenchlabsaipyearthree/apply
Companies that have applied to previous WERCBench Labs program on the F6S, including companies that have participated in WERCBench Labs programs previously, need not re-apply at the link above rather send an email to WERCBench Labs managing director Jacquin Davidson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Companies that have NOT completed a previous WERCBench Labs program will need to demonstrate in their application that they have completed a similar program to the Early-Stage Start-up (ESS) program in a similar accelerator elsewhere in their application.
All companies will then be screened and those selected will complete a final application providing more detailed information on their company financial status to participate in the AIP.
Each team selected to participate in the AIP will receive $20,000 in funding, provided by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC). Half will be paid at the beginning of the program and half upon successful completion of the program.
