Tech Start-ups’ Final Presentations (ICAP Short Course)
February 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Register to attend the final presentations of the 12 local (Shenandoah Valley) tech start-up teams who developed their business model for the last 3 weeks. Their mission: Validate the business model. Build the right team of three or more members.
Develop a minimum viable product (MVP). Create early sales traction. Establish distribution channels and key partnerships.
ICAP is a statewide technology-commercialization program offered by the Virginia Network of Small Business Development Centers, GMU, and local sponsors (SVTC, SBDC, JMU X-Labs). During this 3-week program, the 12 teams did extensive work outside the classroom. In addition to two class meetings, participants spent another 10-15 hours/week on customer discovery and course assignments.
About ICAP: The program is designed to generate a maximum impact over a relatively short duration, and should be considered a required first step for anyone interested in commercializing a technology or product, whether through a startup or licensing arrangement.
To attend: Pre-registration is encouraged so we can send you instructions for JMU parking. (Please *DO NOT* park in front of Lakeview Hall/L lot.)
