Graduate with a career and a future
This on-campus program is designed for aspiring educators and entrepreneurs who are passionate about making a difference in the world.
Through a combination of monthly startup parties, weekly workshops, and bi-weekly meetings with a program manager, startups will receive the support, knowledge, and resources they need to turn their education business ideas into a reality.
Whether you’re at the idea stage or have a prototype ready to launch, this program will provide you with the skills, network, and confidence you need to succeed.
Twice a year, Stepping Stone Venture holds a funding cycle during which it selects a group of startups to take part in the program.
This is an on-campus program which lasts for approximately six months. The two first pilots are under development in Oregon, USA and Oslo, Norway.
At the start of the program, the startups receive a small amount of funding of $10 000 in exchange for an equity stake of 5%. If they are successful, they can get an upgrade to the on campus accelerator program, and receive additional funds up to $150 000 in exchange for 5 – 7% equity.
The startups receive mentorship and guidance from experienced entrepreneurs, investors, and other industry experts.
At the end of the program, the startups pitch their companies to a room of investors during a Demo Day event on campus. We will also stream the event to our global network of investors.
After the program, Stepping Stone Edu will continue to provide support to its alumni through its mentor and investor network and resources and tools provided by www.ipfixit.com.
