Emergent Technology Center (ETC)

The ETC is a collaborative effort where innovators, entrepreneurs and like-minded individuals can learn Lean and Agile business practices, constructively share ideas, and receive assistance when launching a high-tech business.  The Emergent Technology Center selects between three and five technology-based startup companies for each accelerator session (1-2 per year). Selected companies are enrolled in a 12 week mentor-driven Lean Business Startup training program. Teams are exposed to ETC’s vast tech network, required to complete a business model canvas, guided through an intense validation process, and taught to pitch their products to angel investors.

Areas of Expertise:

  • Mentor-driven emerging technologies consultation
  • Business model canvas and lean start-up facilitation and training
  • Customer validation processes
  • Pitch consultation and preparation
  • Seed funding upon accelerator graduation
