UGA Summer Launch Program

The UGA Entrepreneurship Program returns with the Summer Launch Program in June 2021. Summer 2020 took place virtually.

The ideal candidates are teams who went through the UGA Idea Accelerator or any other student team ready to actively launch their business between semesters. This program runs through the end of July. Teams meet once a week to discuss obstacles and how to overcome common problems with experienced entrepreneurs. 

Teams receive:

  • An upfront budget of $5,000 to spend on efforts to grow their business, such as travel and building a prototype.
  • The opportunity to pitch for an additional $5,000 at the end of the program by displaying their hard work, improved business, and revenue generation.

Please use the link at the top of this page to apply to join the 2021 Summer Launch Program!
