E-Team Program

Funding

Venturewell

helps student inventors make an impact on the world.

Overview:

We fund and train student inventors and entrepreneurs who want to address important problems in the world through new technology-based ventures. Our E-Team Program provides funding, immersive workshops, and specialized coaching to student STEM innovators to help them move their inventions into the marketplace. We accept E-Team Program applications three times a year. See the upcoming application deadlines on the right.

An E-Team—or Entrepreneur-Team—is a multidisciplinary group of students and faculty working together to bring an invention to market. Here are some of our top E-Teams.

To check whether you are eligible, here are five questions to ask:

  1. Do you have a science or technology invention?
  2. Could your invention scale to address a social or environmental need? Some examples of types of technologies we fund include medical or healthcare-related
    devices, clean energy technologies, and technologies for low-resource settings.
  3. Does your team include two or more students (grad or undergrad)?
  4. Does your team have a faculty advisor?
  5. Is your university a VentureWell member? Check your school’s membership status.

Spud’s Thoughts:

I hadn’t heard of this group before hearing about this opportunity. I can’t speak much to the group – but I heard of it through Conveners.org which I trust.
