KickStart VT

Need feedback on an idea or new venture from seasoned entrepreneurs? How about seed money to get your idea off the ground?

About this program

Monthly KickStart VT events are student-run workshops for aspiring student entrepreneurs. Come get feedback on your idea, hear what other students are working on and compete for early-stage funding. It’s easy.

To pitch your idea for funding, simply complete two steps:

    1. Apply online (you’ll be done in 5 minutes and can do it on your phone). A sub-set of entries will be selected by a group of judges to present your idea at a KickStart VT LivePitch Finals.
    2. Present your pitch at a LivePitch Finals Event, where seasoned entrepreneurs and your peers help decide the funding awarded to each new venture/idea.

Funds are awarded and managed in partnership with the Apex Center. The program is sponsored by ZinnStarter, courtesy of founder & philanthropist Ray Zinn.
