iVenture Accelerator

The iVenture Accelerator enables student-led startups to create economic and social value by supporting student entrepreneurs with knowledge, funding, and access to world-class University of Illinois resources and alumni.

Launched in Summer 2015, the iVenture Accelerator supports a class of top student startup teams to spend the summer on campus with the time and support they need find product-market fit, build prototypes, pilot programs, build key partnerships, and scale. Whether you are creating a technological innovation, social venture, or cultural campaign, this accelerator equips you with the time, space, resources, and mentorship necessary to turn your idea into a scalable venture.
