FAU Tech Runway® is now accepting applications for this year’s Launch Competition, which helps turn game-changing business ideas into thriving companies.
This year, there will be two application cycles – both spring and fall – for the year-long program. The winners will join the next venture class program at FAU Tech Runway®, which puts startups and entrepreneurs on the fast track to training, instruction, team-based mentoring, networking, marketing and capital-raising assistance, co-working space, events and intern support.
“Successful completion of this program has been a catalyst to propel budding entrepreneurs and startups to the next level,” said Jessica Beaver, associate director of FAU Tech Runway®. “It’s the continued success of the venture class graduates that encouraged Tech Runway to extend a second entry round to applicants.”  
Since its inception in 2014, FAU Tech Runway® has helped launch more than 137 early-stage companies, creating 642 jobs and 200 internships; employing 140 FAU students; earning more than $278.4 million in revenue; and raising more than $133.8 million in investment capital.
