Cleveland State University’s Startup Vikes provides interdisciplinary student teams a pathway for taking an idea from formation to venture creation.
This year, Startup Vikes, November 2-4, 2023, will celebrate its 10th Anniversary! Featuring an intense 2.5-day process using Lean Startup methodologies, currently enrolled college students from across the EEC member network are invited to hone their problem solving, team building, and creative thinking skills and learn to think like entrepreneurs as they create real businesses.
Startup Vikes provides a cash infusion to the top three business ideas and provides a pathway to other business plan competitions in the region for follow-on funding. Since 2014, Startup Vikes has helped to launch 30 companies, twelve of which have received follow-on funding.
Here’s how to participate:
